Welcome to the Central Westchester Deanery Council website where, we hope, you will find useful information that may facilitate efforts to participate in the evangelization mission that Jesus has blessed us to be a part of.
The Archdiocese of New York is organized into 5 regions comprised of 19 different sub-regions, called deaneries, each with its own Dean. The Central Westchester Deanery comprises 25 parishes that are listed on the Deanery Parishes page. Our Deanery is part of the region comprised Central Westchester, Yonkers and supervised by Auxiliary Bishop Gerard Walsh.
The purpose of our Deanery Council is to share information, experience and resources on issues and tasks of common interest; working together on concerns that cross parish lines; serving as a liasion between the parishes and the Archdiocesan Pastoral Council; assisting the Regional Dean of Central Westchester; and collaborating with the Clergy Conference on matters of pastoral concern.
It is not the purpose of the Deanery Council to establish policy for the individual parishes of the Deanery; however, this does not preclude the Deanery Council from presenting recommendations to the Clergy and/or Parish Councils of the parishes within this Deanery.
