We just received word this afternoon Fr. Geoff Horton has been made Administrator of St. Patrick Church in Wapella and the chaplain at Central Catholic High School, along with continuing as the chaplain at the ISU Newman Center. Fr. Horton will no longer be assigned to Holy Trinity and Historic St. Patrick Parishes.
Fr Jeff Stirniman will remain Pastor of Holy Trinity and Historic St Patrick Parishes. It is assumed a new parochial vicar will not be assigned with him.
A word or two (or thirty) from Fr. Horton:
Coming home to Holy Trinity has been a great privilege, both seeing new faces and meeting up with old friends. As you can see from my list of assignments, I will still be close to town as well as in town quite often and I hope to see all of you!
And from Fr. Stirniman:
I wish to thank Fr. Horton for his three years of dedicated work to the ministries and parishioners of our shared three parishes of Holy Trinity, Historic St Patrick, and St Patrick, Wapella . . . as well as to the students of Corpus Christi Catholic School!
Please pray for both of us as we both venture into new ministerial assignments!
Fr Jeff Stirniman and Fr Geoff Horton
