Installation Mass of Father Black

On Sunday, February 25 we welcomed Most Reverend Earl K. Fernandes, Bishop of Columbus to preside over the installation Mass of Father James Black as our pastor at St. Brigid of Kildare Parish.

The Installation Mass symbolized the public installation of Father Black as our pastor by a liturgical rite. Bishop Fernandes invited Father Black to be a loving father, a gentle shepherd, and a wise teacher to our parish community. He was entrusted with the spiritual guidance and care of our parishioners, and was presented to the staff and members of our parish and community.

Following the Mass, there was a reception held in Hendricks Hall.

Ordained to the priesthood in June of 1988, Father Black brings a wealth of knowledge, experience, and a deep dedication to serving our parish. We are blessed to have him as our pastor and look forward to the positive impact he will have on our parish. May God bless him abundantly in his new role, and may our parish thrive under his loving care.
