Father Matthew Morris Reassigned as Pastor at St. Catharine’s

Father Matthew Morris, Parochial Vicar, has been appointed by Bishop Brennan to serve as the Pastor of St. Catharine Catholic Church in Bexley, Ohio, beginning July 6, 2021. He will oversee both the parish and St. Catharine School as part of his new assignment.


Father Morris has been Parochial Vicar at St. Brigid of Kildare for the last five years. He previously served as Parochial Vicar at St. Michael the Archangel in Worthington, OH. He holds a Bachelor in Business from Ohio University, a Master of Business Administration from Bowling Green State University, and a Master of Arts in Theology from the Pontifical College Josephinum. Father Morris grew up in Lancaster, Ohio, and prior to joining the seminary, spent the beginning of his career as an accountant. 


At Saint Brigid of Kildare, Father Morris has been instrumental in taking our Masses online for our at-home audience. He also oversaw the liturgical ministries, the Parish Life Committee, and assisted Monsignor Hendricks as needed. We are very grateful for his service over the past five years at St. Brigid of Kildare, and he will be greatly missed!
