About one-third of 30 active priests on P.E.I. are from India, filling void left by priests retiring over past six years

Bishop Richard Grecco is heading to India to provide a progress report of sorts on the several Indian priests working in P.E.I.

Grecco, the bishop for the Diocese of Charlottetown, is heading for India for a nearly month-long visit.

He will be joined by Rev. Eric Dunn, the victor general of the Diocese of Charlottetown. Grecco will meet with other bishops and religious superiors who have priests serving here on P.E.I.

"So it's a pastoral visit, bishop to bishop,'' Grecco told The Guardian recently.

These guys are adapting really well Bishop Richard Grecco

Nine priests have come from India to work in Prince Edward Island over the past five years, making up about one-third of the 30 priests active in the diocese's parishes in this province.

Grecco is pleased by the performance of the Indian priests – a mix of missionary and diocesan priests – that have helped to fill a void created by 12 priests retiring over the past six years.

"These guys are adapting really well,'' he says.
