Catholic Resources, Information, Media, and Reference

Some Helpful Links and Resources:

Ever wonder what a Pastor is? or what we mean when a priest holds the title parochial vicar?

  • Pastor: The primary Shepard of the Parish who exercises authority as an extension and coworker of the diocesan bishop, here at Our Lady of the Lakes, Father Leo Rienhardt is our pastor. This means he is the chief Shepard of the parish and is charged with the care of the parish through his connection to Our Bishop, who is Bishop Matano. Cannon Law describes the pastor as such “The pastor (parochus) is the proper pastor (pastor) of the parish entrusted to him, exercising the pastoral care of the community committed to him under the authority of the diocesan bishop in whose ministry of Christ he has been called to share, so that for that same community he carries out the functions of teaching, sanctifying, and governing, also with the cooperation of other presbyters (priests) or deacons and with the assistance of lay members of the Christian faithful, according to the norm of law” (Canon Law 519)
  • Parochial Vicar: Appointed by the bishop to assist the pastor in caring for the flock. Canon Law states the following: “Parochial vicars are priests who render their services in pastoral ministry as co-workers with the pastor in common counsel and endeavor with him and also under his authority.” (Canon Law 541.1)  Our Parochial Vicar is Father Felicjan at Our Lady of the Lakes.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church: issued by Saint Pope John Paul II the Catechism of the Catholic church is meant to provide the faithful with a summary of doctrine. It is a great reference guide to matters of faith!
