A Vicar General is a priest who has the executive power over the whole diocese which belongs to the diocesan bishop by law, namely, the power to place all administrative acts except those, however, which the bishop has reserved to himself or which require a special mandate of the bishop by law. (c. 479.1)
In the Diocese of Salina, there are two Vicars General: Fr. Fred Gatschet also serves as Rector of Sacred Heart Cathedral in Salina and Fr. Rich Daise serves as the Vicar for Clergy and is Pastor at Sacred Heart Parish in Colby.
