Diocese of Toledo announces 6 canonical appointments

Bishop Daniel E. Thomas has made the following canonical appointments:

  • Very Reverend Dennis G. Walsh, VF, as Pastor of Saint Patrick Parish, Spencerville, in addition to his responsibilities as Pastor of Saint John the Evangelist Parish, Delphos, and Saint John the Baptist Parish, Landeck, effective July 1, 2016. (NB: This is a change from what was previously announced. Given the recent decision by Bishop Thomas to align Saint Patrick Parish, Spencerville, with Saint John the Evangelist Parish, Delphos, and Saint John the Baptist Parish, Landeck, Father Walsh will become Pastor of Saint Patrick Parish on July 1, not Reverend Kent Kaufman as had been previously announced.)
  • Reverend Austin A. Ammanniti to graduate studies in Rome, residing at the Pontifical North American College, effective July 8, 2016.
  • Reverend David D. Kidd to graduate studies in Rome, residing at the Pontifical North American College, effective July 8, 2016.
