Deanery Structure

The parishes of the Diocese of the Midwest are organized into administrative deaneries based on geographic location. The Diocese has six deaneries. Each deanery has a Dean elected by the assigned priests of the deanery and confirmed by the Bishop.

The work of the deanery is overseen and guided by the Dean who is a Rector from within the respective deanery. He coordinates and directs activities of the parishes and priests within the deanery, guiding the establishment of missions, and serving as the first appeal if or when disputes arise within the deanery.

In all matters, the Deans report directly to the Bishop, from whom they receive advice, instruction, and counsel, and for whom they act as an administrative liaisons to their own deanery communities.
