New Assignments
The May 24, 2019 edition of The Leaven had two announcements in the new priest assignments article that are of particular interest to Curé of Ars Parish.
We want to warmly welcome Father Colin Haganey as our new associate. He was one of the six transitional deacons who completed seminary formation and was ordained to the priesthood on May 25 by Archbishop Joseph Naumann. His assignment will be effective July 3. He prefers to be called Fr. Haganey.
Fr. Haganey is no stranger to Curé of Ars, having served here for a brief time during this past year. We will feature him in an introductory biographical sketch in a future edition of our bulletin.   
Father Justin Hamilton has been assigned by Archbishop Joseph Naumann as associate at St. Joseph Parish, Shawnee, effective July 3.
We want to thank Fr. Justin for his time of service here at Curé of Ars. We will host a reception honoring him sometime in June. Watch the bulletin for details.
