The Diocese of Savannah College of Consulters just elected the Administrator for the Diocese until a new bishop is named by Pope Francis. He is my former parishioner and altar boy at the Church of the Most Holy Trinity in Augusta where I was pastor from 1991 - 2004 and my first parochial vicar for two years at St. Joseph Church in Macon in 2004-06. It is Father Dan Firmin, Vicar General for the Diocese and pastor of St. James the Less in Savannah. The photo below was taken in 1999 I think and in Vienna, Austria. All three guys were my parishioners at Most Holy Trinity and all laymen at the time. Going clockwise from me is Fr. Dan Firmin, Fr. Mark Van Alstine and Fr. Aaron Pidell, SJ. Then, Mark Van Alstine and I were on our way back visiting our sister parish in Tbilisi in the Republic of Georgia with a layover in Vienna. Dan Firmin and Aaron Pidel were on a “study abroad” with Franciscan University in Steubenville.
