Nativity Catholic pastor to take position at Miami seminary




Nativity Catholic Church leader will head to Miami

The pastor of Nativity Catholic Church will take a new position as spiritual director to the seminarians at St. John Vianney College Seminary in Miami.

Father Arthur Proulx has served as pastor at Nativity Catholic Church for nearly 10 years.

The move was requested by Bishop Robert Lynch after Proulx received a call from the rector of St. John Vianney College Seminary in August.

"As hard as it will be for me to leave Nativity, I understand that the training of future priests is an urgent task at this moment in church history," Proulx wrote in a letter to parishioners.

As part of the training for his new position, Proulx will spend one week at Mundelein Seminary near Chicago starting May 11, followed by a month at Creighton University in Omaha, Neb.

Proulx's last weekend at Nativity will be May 3 and 4.

"This is still seven weeks away, so let's save our good-byes until then," Proulx wrote in the letter sent last week. "In the meantime, please know how much I love being part of Nativity and until I leave I intend to serve you diligently and gratefully."

The church hopes to announce a replacement in the coming weeks.
