Father Luyen Dau, C.Ss.R. has been assigned by our Provincial leadership to St. Gerard’s Parish in Lima which is served by the Redemptorists.
He will live and do some work at St. Gerard’s but he will be the pastor at a smaller parish called St. Mary’s in Bluffton, Ohio. The Provincial asked him to take this assignment since Father Dau had been a pastor in Canada and has experience in that role. Father Luyen is a dedicated Redemptorist who accepted this new assignment very willingly. I can say he is very happy here at St. Mary’s, loves all of you and the parish, and is a delightful member of our community. I know we Redemptorists will miss him very much as I know you will. He will be leaving us at the end of October and we are presently planning a farewell party for him. I do believe that the Redemptorists will be assigning another priest to our community and parish at around the same time.
St. Mary’s Parish, a Catholic congregation served by the Redemptorist Order, includes St. Mary’s Church and St. John Neumann Mission Church. St. Mary's Elementary and High School located in downtown Annapolis, Maryland, serve students in grades Pre-Kindergarten through 12. Anchored in faith, rooted in tradition, and committed to excellence, our programs build lifelong learners who are servant leaders.
