Fr. Mark and Fr. Tim will be leaving STM for new assignments this summer. The Jesuit Provincial of the Jesuits-East Province is sending Fr. Mark to teach and do chaplaincy work at Gonzaga College High School in Washington DC. He has been pastor at STM since February 2016. He will leave STM for Washington in mid-July. Fr. Tim has been parochial vicar at STM since January 2019. His next assignment is not yet finalized. He will leave STM in mid-June. Fr. Tim’s replacement at STM has not yet been named.
Fr. Robert Hussey, S.J., will be the new pastor at STM. Fr. Bob has previously served as the provincial of the former Maryland Province and as pastor of St. Raphael’s Church, the Jesuits’ parish in Raleigh NC. He studied at LSU and Duke University. He entered the Jesuits in 1989 and was ordained a priest in 2000.
We will be sad to see Fr. Mark and Fr. Tim leave but wish them all the best at their new assignments. There will be a parish-wide farewell gathering on Saturday, June 5th after 5:30pm Mass. More info coming soon.
