5.13.2 IntroductionThe policies and procedures in this section apply only to
priests, diocesan or religious, incardinated or extern,
in or out of active ministry, who are or wish to be present in the archdiocese.
The policies and procedures of this section are applications of the universal
law of the Church contained in the code of canon law and elsewhere and are
subordinate to those norms. The section is part of the Administrative Handbook;
it does not replace any policies or procedures except where indicated. In case
of a conflict between this section and other policies, the vicar for clergy and the human resources director should be consulted for a resolution. The archbishop in his role
as chief shepherd of the archdiocese may allow for a waiver of these policies and procedures when such an
exception serves the needs of the local Church and is consistent with the norms
of the Church.
