Fr. Christopher Sherren is now the Chancellor of the Diocese of Charlottetown. Fr. Chris has served the diocese as priest in several parishes including St. Pius X and St. Pauls’ in Summerside. He is completing his Cannon Law studies and is well versed in the practical as well as theoretical realities of life in the parish.
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.
