Canon 285

1. In order for a presbyter to be named pastor it is necessary

that he be of good morals, sound doctrine, zealous for souls,

endowed with prudence and the other virtues and gifts which are

required by law in order to fulfill the parochial ministry in a

praiseworthy manner. 2. If the presbyter is married, good

morals are required in his wife and his children who live with

him. 3. After he has weighed all the circumstances, the eparchial bishop is to confer a vacant parish on the one whom he judges suitable without any partiality; in order to make a judgment

concerning a person's suitability he is to listen to the proto-presbyter, conduct appropriate investigations and, if he considers it opportune, listen also to other Christian faithful especially clerics.
