St. Mary Catholic Church Chillicothe Ohio



Bishop Brennan has let us know that we can share with you the good news that Fr. Timothy Hayes has been appointed pastor of the new three-parish cluster of St. Mary and St. Peter parishes here in Chillicothe, and St. Mary parish in Waverly. Fr. Hayes presently serves as pastor of St. Timothy parish in Columbus. Also, Fr. Cyrus Haddad has been named pastor of St. Colman of Cloyne parish in Washington Court House, which will once again be a stand-alone parish. Fr. Haddad presently serves as one of two parochial vicars at St. Joseph Cathedral, and as chaplain to the Extraordinary Form Mass Community at Holy Family parish in downtown Columbus. As you know from previous announcements these changes are the result of my retiring this summer and Fr. Hahn being appointed by Bishop Brennan to serve as the new Director of Vocations for the Diocese. Fr. Hayes and Fr. Haddad will likely begin their new assignments during the regular rotation time in July, but that does have the potential to change given some of the unknowns that all of us in Ohio are dealing with at this time as a result of the coronavirus; I will keep you posted if there is a change in this starting date. By the grace of God, let us welcome Fr. Hayes to St. Mary's and celebrate with joy in the Lord.
