This article thoroughly reviews the duties of a Dean according to partial and common law. He is the joining link between the Ordinary and local priests. His duties include not only visiting the parishes, but also taking care of priests’ intellectual and spiritual education by showing his own efforts. The Dean mainly coordinates priests’ pastoral activities beyond the borders of parishes. It is especially important to advise the priests on how to administrate Church’s property in order not to waste but to allo-cate it to the public. People’s donations should be used for honourable apostolic purposes.

The Dean has to take interest in the activities of the Council of Pastoral Care and the Council of Economical Affairs of his parish. He is responsible for ensuring that the orders of the Bishop are being implemented, looking after senior priests, taking care of the funerals. The issue of the funerals is also discussed in this article as priests consider this issue differently. Some state that the most important thing for a person is to be baptized; others stress the importance of the membership in the community. Priests have to follow not only cannons, but also the regulations of the Conference of Lithuanian Bishops when considering who cannot be buried with Church’s rituals.
