When a priest or deacon of the Diocese of Covington wishes to offer short-term ministerial service in another diocese, the Chancery must issue a statement of suitability and good standing on his behalf. The Statement of Suitability and Good Standing will be sent directly to the Chancery of the diocese to be visited and a copy will be sent to the parish or institution where the ministerial service will be offered. The priest or deacon will not receive a copy of the statement.
A form requesting the statement, available below, is to be submitted to the Chancery at least three weeks before the ministerial service is scheduled to take place. Exceptions to the time limit include funerals and other emergency situations, but a request still must be submitted. Please mail or fax the completed form to:
