The Diocese of Manchester, which is entrusted to the Bishop of Manchester for his pastoral care, is assisted in his administration of the diocese by his curia. The diocesan curia consists of those individuals as well as those structures that exist to assist the diocesan bishop in his governance responsibilities. The curia has a threefold function: guiding pastoral action, conducting general administration and exercising judicial power.
As Auxiliary Bishop and Vicar General, Bishop Francis J. Christian assists Bishop Peter A. Libasci in fulfilling his governance responsibilities. In addition, Bishop Libasci is assisted in his administration of the diocese by members of his Cabinet, who work with him in developing and setting pastoral priorities for the diocese. Rev. Robert E. Gorski, the Moderator of the Curia, assists Bishop Libasci in the pastoral administration of the diocesan office, coordinates the work of the cabinet secretaries, and ensures that the members of the curia fulfill their pastoral, spiritual, and administrative duties.
The following are members of the Bishop’s Cabinet:
