Sorry, He’s Not a Msgr.

Dear Editor: When a recent Tablet came in the mail, there was a list of new assignments for our priests. Father Peter Purpura was listed with a monsignor’s title.

Has he been made a monsignor?

Editor’s Note: The title of Very Reverend is not necessarily a monsignor’s title. In Father Purprua’s case, it denotes that he is the rector of a Cathedral church. The current practice is not to name anyone under 65 as a monsignor.
