The newly-elected president of the Paulist Fathers has appointed our Executive Director, Fr. Dave Dwyer, CSP, to his presidential leadership team. In this role, Fr. Dave will be part of the day-to-day administration and leadership of his priests’ community on the national level, including implementing the Paulists’ collective vision for the future. In addition to new responsibilities, Fr. Dave will continue to guide Busted Halo Ministries and host the Busted Halo radio show on SiriusXM radio.

“I am honored and humbled to accept this call to serve my brothers in the Lord,” says Fr. Dave. “I am grateful for the trust that our President-elect Fr. René has placed in me to take on this new challenge and minister alongside him and the Vice President for the next four years.”

We ask for your prayers that the Holy Spirit inspire and guide Fr. Dave and the new President as the Paulists continue to share the timeless truths and joy of the Gospel in new ways with the People of God in America and beyond.

We are pleased to introduce our next presidential board.

The presidential board handles the day-to-day administration and leadership of our missionary society on the national level, and implements our collective vision for the future.

The three members of this new collaborative leadership team will be: Paulist Fr. René Constanza as President; Paulist Fr. Frank Desiderio as Vice President; and Paulist Fr. Dave Dwyer as First Consultor.

They will take office on June 7.

Fr. René's election was announced January 31:

Fr. Frank, our next Vice President, has served as our First Consultor for the past eight years.

He previously served as president of Paulist Productions; director of The Paulist Center, Boston, MA; and as director of formation at our seminary in Washington, D.C.

Fr. Dave, our next First Consultor, has served since 2004 as executive director of our media ministry Busted Halo.

Fr. Dave also hosts "The Busted Halo Show" weeknights on The Catholic Channel on SiriusXM Radio, which he will continue to do.

Please pray that the Holy Spirit will inspire and guide Fr. René, Fr. Frank and Fr. Dave as they begin their new roles!

Fr. Dave answers your Lent questions! Here's what we answered:

6:45 >> I am wondering how to fast. What can I drink? Am I able to eat 1 meal or nothing?

15:05 >> Why do Catholics leave Ash on our forehead? Doesn’t that go against today’s Gospel?
