Dear Father Colamarino: Following consultation with the Diocesan Clergy Personnel Board and in accord with Canon 523 of the Code of Canon Law, I am pleased to reappoint you Pastor of Christ the Light of the World Parish, Duquesne for a fourth term of six (6) years, and Pastor of St. Joseph Parish, Duquesne, for a second term of six (6) years. These assignments become effective immediately.
I recognize your willingness to maintain these responsibilities and have every confidence that you will continue to provide appropriate pastoral leadership at Christ the Light of the World and St. Joseph parishes. I am also convinced that your parishioners will rejoice with you. I know that you will assist them to grow in holiness and to work for the building up of God’s kingdom in the Church of Pittsburgh. I also ask that you give special attention to promoting and praying for vocations to the priesthood and religious life in our Diocese.
In reappointing you to these assignments I also wish to extend my sincere gratitude for your fidelity to the priesthood and your share in my ministry to the faithful of this Diocese. In a particular way I appreciate your love for the Church and your genuine priestly zeal. Grateful for our belief that “Nothing is impossible with God.” I am Your brother in Christ, David A Zubik, Bishop of Pittsburgh
