Father Rolando Silva is back in ministry in the Diocese of Gaylord.  This announcement was made on the Diocese of Gaylord website.  The leave of absence regarding Fr. Silva was reported by Gaylord Diocesan Watch.

Every priest that leaves active ministry is a major blow to the ability of the Diocese to provide sacraments for the faithful.  It is the hope of all faithful that Fr. Silva is of adequate health in mind, body, and soul to be the shepherd for his parishioners.  All faithful Catholics in the Diocese should pray for the success of Fr. Silva’s priestly ministry and welcome him back.
