Fr. Cray elected to lead Society of St. Edmund
The Very Rev. David Cray, SSE, a Boston native and 1968 Saint Michael’s College graduate who has ministered in Canada, Europe and the American South until coming to Vermont in 2003 to be pastor at Catholic parishes in Hinesburg and Charlotte, VT, was elected July 12 to be the new Superior General of The Society of Saint Edmund, founding religious order of Saint Michael’s. He succeeds the Rev. Stephen Hornat as superior general. Fr. Hornat, who served a four-year term, likely will continue as pastor of St. Stephen Church in Winooski as he has done during his term as superior general. The Edmundites held their Generalate meeting, which happens every four years, from Monday through Thursday, July 9-12 on the Saint Michael’s campus, voting on new leadership and tending to other business.
