Dear Parishioners of St. Agnes,
We welcome into our midst Fr. Darren Zehnle who has been assigned by Bishop Paprocki to our parish as a parochial vicar. Fr. Zehnle is originally from Quincy and has been in Rome for the past three years working on a degree in canon law (Church law). In addition to being here, he will also serve as the chief master of ceremonies for the Bishop as well as being a judge on our diocesan marriage tribunal and the associate director for the Office of Worship and the Catechumenate. I know Fr. Zehnle is anxious to be "back home" and settle into life on "this side of the Atlantic!"
Please introduce yourselves to him and help make him feel and home!
