Rev. Stanley Gomes
The Office of Adjunct Clergy Personnel has the responsibility for the approximately 75 extern priests who minister in the Archdiocese. These priests, in most cases, minister to the diverse and growing number of immigrants who have come to the Archdiocese. While the large majority of these immigrants come from Central and South America, there are also significant numbers from Portugal, the Philippines and Poland, as well as some from Korea, India and Vietnam. The availability of priests who can minister to these communities in their native language and are aware of their culture has had a positive impact on the spiritual life of the many immigrant Catholics who come to the Archdiocese.
