Default two questions

Who is the Chancellor? Ive heard him talked about by Deacons, Priests, Bishops, etc. FOr eaxmple: I'll be asking Father something after Mass and someone ahead of me (theres always a few, right?). Someone will be asking Father about something and I'll overhear (unintentionally) Father will say 'oh I would but I have a meeting with the Chancellor that day.' Another time we were having Honor Guard practice for a ceremony we were doing the day after, and the Marshal and Deputy came in apologizing their tardiness explaining they were in a meeting with the Chancellor.

So Im curious who exactly is the Chancellor? In the governance of a Diocese there are all sorts of ranks, titles, positions, etc. Near I can tell, the Chancellor has something to do with oversight, advisor, or is coordinator in some capacity, or what is his job/role exactly?



my second question: many of you have probably seen 'Faith and Culture' on EWTN with Colleen Carol Campbell. Great show, and great analyst. She has a book entitled 'The New Faithful' about the younger generation in the Church. As a 23-year old, this is of course of great interest to me. Has anyone read it, how is it, and what are its main points?

Quote:
In the Roman Catholic Church a chancellor is the chief record-keeper of a diocese or eparchy or their equivalent. Normally a priest, sometimes a deacon or layperson, the chancellor keeps the official archives of the diocese, as a notary certifies documents, and generally manages the administrative offices (and sometimes finances and personnel) of a diocese. He may be assisted by vice-chancellors. Though he manages the paperwork and office (called the "chancery"), has no actual jurisdictional authority: the bishop of the diocese exercises decision-making authority through his judicial vicar, in judicial matters, and the vicar general for administrative matters.

I haven't read the book, but I do enjoy -- and find informative -- Campbell's prorgram. She has an impressive resume and it's good to know that there are some of these people who are unabashedly faithful Catholics.

God bless,
Dan
