Dear Bishop Coyne,
I am happy you’ve made time to visit the children in Middlebury. I hope you will soon have time to get to know the priests in Vermont. Start with each Deanery. Don’t wait until you visit each parish. Your Priests need positive support and communication from you, their new shepherd. I think they should be a top priority. They are truly the presence of God in our lives, sacrificing daily.
Thank you for your consideration and openness that allows to communicate with you.
Lee Forte

I have a meeting with all the priests scheduled for wednesday March 18 and am in the process of scheduling meetings at the deanery level.
