Father Gregory Breen

Posted on May 20, 2015

We are happy to share with you this good news: It is diocesan policy that priests are assigned to parishes for certain terms. A newly ordained priest is usually posted for five years in his first assignment. Subsequent assignments generally run for six years, with the possibility of yearly extensions. Fr. Greg Breen has just completed his sixth year here in St. Joseph. Bishop Murphy has responded to our request and has extended Fr. Greg’s assignment to our parish for another year. This is good news for all of us, since we greatly appreciate Fr. Greg’s dedicated and generous ministry. We congratulate Fr. Greg.
