  • Lay Ministry
  • Catechesis and Faith Formation
  • Native American Ministry

“I am so pleased to welcome Mrs. Aimee Viana to the Catholic Center,” said Bishop Burbidge. “It is an honor to have such a talented and faithful individual as a new member of my Executive Staff. The responsibilities I have entrusted to her are of critical pastoral importance in the life of our church, especially at this time, and I am confident that she will embrace the opportunities that await her with great zeal and dedication.”

As the head of the Secretariat, Mrs. Viana serves as a member of Bishop Burbidge’s Executive Staff along with current members:

  • Msgr. David Brockman (Vicar General)
