This is a great opportunity for a qualified candidate working under the leadership of Bishop Christopher J. Coyne, as this is an exciting time in our Catholic faith within the State of Vermont! Bishop Coyne stated in January 2015: "... the call of Pope Saint John Paul II, Pope Benedict, and now Pope Francis to Catholics to re-engage ourselves into a deep, personal relationship with Jesus Christ, from which we "go out" and evangelize those who are not within "our doors." In this spirit, I take these words of Pope Francis very much to heart: "We must restore hope to young people, help the old, be open to the future, spread love. Be poor among the poor. We need to include the excluded and preach peace."

The history of Catholicism in Vermont began in July of 1609 with the arrival of Samuel de Champlain, who named the land for its green mountains ("VoilĂ  les monts verts!"). The Church developed slowly through three phases. The early period of evangelization and missionary activity planted the seed and set down roots. Catholicism in Vermont came of age with the establishment of the Diocese of Burlington in 1853. The third, contemporary phase began after about 1965 with efforts to implement the renewal of the Second Vatican Council.
The state population in 2014 was recorded at 626,562 residents, with 118,000 being Roman Catholic. The Diocese of Burlington has 65 priests in active ministry, 40 permanent deacons, and 90 sisters ministering in 73 parishes and 28 missions. The diocese included 11 elementary schools, two high schools, and a catechetical system with an estimated 1,100 lay teachers instructing almost 12,800 students.

Vermont is also known for the beautiful mountains and lakes. Vermont has also won prestigious awards for being the safest and best place to raise a family.
