When the sabbath came he began to teach in the synagogue, and 
many who heard him were astonished. They said, "Where did this 
man get all this? What kind of wisdom has been given him? What 
mighty deeds are wrought by his hands!" - Mk 6:2

 

 

Meet our new Priest

Father Henry Carmona has been assigned to our parish as an Administrator and will be arriving the week of July 20th.

Father Henry Carmona was ordained to the priesthood for the Diocese of Boise by Bishop Alberto Giraldo on July 20, 1978, in Cali. He served in parishes in Cali and in Idaho as an associate pastor at San Juan Bautista, Cali (1978-79) and St. Hubert’s, Homedale (1979). He served as pastor for San Juan Bautista (1979-81) and at San Marcos, Cali (1981-85, 1987-90). He was administrator of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Nampa (1985-86); St. Hubert’s in Homedale (1991), and Our Lady of Good Help in Mountain Home (2009-10). Father Carmona enrolled in graduate classes at the Universidad Javieriana in Bogota (1986-87, 1992), graduating with a degree in canon law. In 1992, he returned full-time to Idaho, serving as a pastor at Our Lady Queen of Heaven, Oreana, and Our Lady of Guadalupe, Nampa (1992-95) and St. Nicholas, Rupert (1995-2003), before being appointed rector at St. John Cathedral. He retired from active service on June 30, 2014.

Besides his parish assignments, Father Carmona has served on the Priest Personnel Commission (1984-97, 2003-06); the Pastors Advisory Council (1995); the Presbyteral Council (as dean for the Southern region, 2001-03; 2006-11); and director of Treinen House (2006). Father Carmona also served as diocesan judicial vicar (1998-2014).

What is the difference between a Pastor and an Administrator?

An Administrator and a Pastor differ mainly in the length of their term. A Pastor is usually appointed for a set period of time that is renewable. An Administrator is appointed for an indeterminate period of time. An Administrator exercises the same basic authority as a Pastor within the parish where he is assigned. Administrators are asked not to push a major parish endeavor, e.g. building a church, school… during their time in a parish. Also, an Administrator has more latitude to shift from one parish to another as he or the Bishop requests.
