The Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA (AMS), will soon have a new Vicar General and Moderator of the Curia. Father Jeffrey G. Laible, Ch, Col, USAF, a chaplain in the Illinois Air National Guard, will assume the new position in July. He succeeds Monsignor John J.M. Foster, J.C.D., who is returning to his home Diocese of Stockton, CA, following eight years of fruitful service to the AMS.
Reporting directly to His Excellency, the Most Reverend Timothy P. Broglio, J.C.D., Archbishop for the Military Services, the Vicar General is responsible for overseeing the day-to-day operations of the Archdiocese in its service to 1.8 million Catholics worldwide. A long and productive track record of service to God and country distinguishes Father Laible (pronounced “LI’-uh-blee”) for the position.
