Health care ministry has new coordinator
Deacon John Nelson, health-care ministry coordinator for the diocesan office of Parish Support Ministries since 2002, resigned his position as of Sept. 1.
Deacon Nelson's departure is due to family responsibilities and for personal and health-related reasons, according to an announcement from Bernard Grizard, director of Parish Support Ministries.
He will be succeeded by Deacon John Brasley, who currently serves Parish Support Ministries as coordinator of the offices of Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs and Urban Ministry Services and as diocesan jail-ministry coordinator. Deacon Brasley will continue serving in these roles as he takes on the health-care ministry position.
