Mr. Gerald Gabriel is currently the Chancellor of the Diocese of Charlottetown. He has a Masters of Arts (M.A.) in Atlantic Canadian Studies from Saint Mary’s University and a Masters of Theological Studies (M.T.S.) from the Atlantic School of Theology. He is also a graduate of the Lay Pastoral Associate Formation Programs of the Archdiocese of Halifax-Yarmouth and the Diocese of Charlottetown.
Strictly speaking the Chancellor is the “Keeper of the Archives.” In the past fifty years many duties have been added to this office to assist the Bishop in the Administration of the Diocese. Today the Chancellor often serves as the Moderator of the Curia where coordination of Pastoral Services and staff is conducted. The Chancellor issues official documents, reviews Marriage Dispensations/permissions, and many duties delegated by the Bishop of the Diocese.
