December 5, 2018 — (Wilmington, Delaware) — The Most Rev. W. Francis Malooly, Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Wilmington, has appointed Rev. Glenn M. Evers to the post of Associate Moderator of the Curia. In this role, Father Evers will assist the Moderator of the Curia, Rev. Msgr. Steven P. Hurley, as the chief administrator of the Diocese. Father Evers’ new responsibilities are in addition to his current positions as Associate Pastor of St. Mary of the Assumption in Hockessin, Delaware, and Director of the Office for Cultural Ministries for the Diocese.
“I am most grateful to Father Evers for taking on this important additional role,” Bishop Malooly said. “His knowledge, as well as his always cheerful attitude and remarkable work-ethic makes him a great addition to the Diocesan Curia.”
Father Evers attended St. Elizabeth Elementary School and St. Mark’s High School in Wilmington and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science from the University of Delaware in Newark, Delaware, and a Master’s of Divinity from Immaculate Conception Seminary in South Orange, New Jersey where he was awarded the Pope John Paul II Medal for Academic Excellence for attaining the highest GPA of his graduating class. He was ordained to the priesthood in 2013 by Bishop Malooly and served as Associate Pastor at Saints Peter and Paul Parish in Easton, Maryland prior to his Hockessin and Cultural Ministries assignment.
“There is always a lot going on in diocesan administration,” Msgr. Hurley commented. “All of the clergy, and many of the lay staff, perform multiple jobs. I am looking forward to having Father Evers’ assistance as we continue to move forward to serve the Catholic community of Delaware and Maryland’s Eastern Shore.”
“I deeply love our Catholic Faith and am always happy to assist our Bishop and the Diocese in whatever manner I can,” Father Evers said. “I was very humbled that he asked me to serve in this new capacity and look forward to continuing to do my best to serve God and His People here in Delaware and the Easter Shore of Maryland. We are doing great things in our Diocese and it is a blessing now to be directly involved in helping us to continue to grow together.”
According to Canon Law, the Moderator of the Curia, under the authority of the bishop of a diocese in the Catholic Church, coordinates the exercise of the administrative duties and oversees those who hold offices and minister in diocesan administration.
The Catholic Diocese of Wilmington was established in 1868 and comprises 56 parishes, 18 missions and 36 schools serving the State of Delaware and the nine counties of Maryland’s Eastern Shore. The diocese is in the midst of its year-long 150th anniversary celebration that will conclude on March 3, 2019. More information is available at www.cdow.org.
