Welcome Fr. Troy Richmond
Effective July 1st, Fr. Troy Richmond is assigned as pastor of St. Mary Parish, Oskaloosa and St. Mary Parish, Pella. As of July 1st Fr. Troy is relieved of his current assignment as pastor of Saints Mary & Mathias Parish, Muscatine and St. Joseph Parish, Columbus Junction. Fr. Troy is the son of Sherry Richmond and the late Gary Richmond of Ottumwa, Iowa. Fr. Troy was ordained for the Diocese of Davenport by Bishop Wm. E. Franklyn, D.D. in 2003. I am pleased to share this brief notice of Fr. Troy’s assignment with my parishes of SMO/SMP. I look forward to offering more of an introduction of Fr. Troy next weekend. Let us pray for Fr. Troy as he comes to take leave of the parishes, he has served as pastor for six years and as he prepares to come to all of us at SMO/SMP as our pastor.
