Priests in a Parish: We use the
following convention to show a priest's place among the clergy of a parish:
1/2 means that he is the first priest listed in the Official Catholic
Directory (usually the pastor) and that there is a total of two priests
at the parish. The shorthand 3/4 means that the priest is listed third
on a four-priest roster. See our sample
page from the Directory.
Note: The Official Catholic Directory aims to
report the whereabouts of Catholic priests in the United States on January
1 of the Directory's publication year. Our working assumption
is that a priest listed in the Directory for a given year was
at the same assignment for part of the previous year as well. However,
Kenedy and Sons will sometimes accept updates well into the year of publication.
Diocesan clergy records are rarely available to correct this information.
The Directory is also sometimes misleading or wrong. We have
tried to create an accurate assignment record, given the source materials
and their limitations. Assignment records are a work in progress and we
are always improving the records that we post. Please email
us with new information and corrections.
This assignment record collates Papile's career history as it is represented
in the Official Catholic Directory witha list on the website
of the Law Offices of Mitchell Garabedian. We make no representation regarding
the truth of the allegation we report, and we remind our readers that
the U.S. legal system presumes that a person accused of or charged with
a crime is innocent until proven guilty. Similarly, individuals who may
be defendants in civil actions are presumed not to be liable for such
claims unless a plaintiff proves otherwise. Admissions of guilt or liability
are not typically a part of civil or private settlements. For more information,
see our posting
