Diocesan Offices

Chancery

A bishop, by divine institution, carries on the work of the apostles. By reason of episcopal consecration, he shares in the triple apostolic function of a teacher of doctrine, a priest of sacred worship, and minister of church government. Bishops are responsible to act in council to guide the Church. The bishop to whom a particular or local church is entrusted is called a diocesan bishop or a residential bishop. All other bishops receive Titular Sees over which they exercise no pastoral authority.

When the pastoral needs of a diocese or archdiocese warrant it, an auxiliary bishop may be assigned to aid the residential bishop in governing his diocese. An auxiliary bishop is assigned when the residential bishop needs assistance in carrying out his duties because of ill health, advanced age, or amount of work. An auxiliary bishop does not have the right of succession within his diocese.

In special circumstances, such as the advanced age or ill health of a diocesan bishop, a coadjutor bishop may be appointed to assist the principal bishop of a diocese. Coadjutor bishops have the right of succession in the diocese of their appointment from the time the See becomes vacant upon the death or retirement of its bishop.
