Congratulations to Reverend Dennis Walsh!

Pope Francis has named Reverend Dennis G. Walsh, currently a priest and pastor of the Diocese of Toledo, as the 10th Bishop of the Diocese of Davenport, Iowa. This is the first time in the history of the Diocese of Toledo that one of our own priests has been named directly to become the Ordinary of another diocese.

June 11, 2024 June 11, 2024

Please pray for our Bishop & Priests:

The priests of the Diocese of Toledo will gather with Bishop Daniel E. Thomas for their bi-annual Convocation from June 17-20, 2024.  Once again, the convocation will be at Sawmill Creek Resort, Huron, Ohio. The bishop has the expectation that all active diocesan priests will be joining him for the full duration of the Convocation. Therefore, daily Mass schedules and priests’ office hours throughout the diocese will be altered to accommodate the participation of all active priests in the convocation. The convocation provides our priests the opportunity to be together for spiritual nourishment, prayer, fellowship, and recreation. Please remember to pray for all of them, that their priestly fidelity, unity, and identity will continue to be renewed and deepened.
