Administration

Fr. Ray Enzweiler
Pastor
For those who don’t know me, I am a native son of St. Thomas. I attended school here, Newport Catholic, and Thomas More. I sang in the various choral groups and was active on the liturgy committee. I remained in the parish while doing my graduate studies at the University of Cincinnati, earning a Ph.D. in physics. I taught for three years in central New York at SUNY College at Cortland and then returned to the parish when I became a faculty member of the NKU Physics and Geology Department. I had been there eleven years when I began seminary studies for the Diocese of Covington. I completed Pre-Theology program at Mundelein Seminary in Chicago then I was offered the opportunity to study in Rome by the Diocese. I lived at the Pontifical North American College and studied at the Gregorian University (earning an STB) then the Regina Apostolorum in June, 2007, where I earned a License in Bioethics (BeL). (A “License” is somewhat comparable to the MA.) I was ordained a deacon by Bishop Foys on March 19, 2005, and a priest on June 23, 2006.

 


Fr. Ross Kelsch
Pastor
I was ordained two years ago in 2017 by Bishop Foys and was first assigned to Saint Timothy in Union. 
I’ve been in Northern Kentucky most of my life.  I grew up in Augusta, KY with my parents and two younger brothers where I attended Saint Augustine Elementary and Augusta High School.  I lived in Cold Spring for several years and earned a BA in Business and Technology from NKU.  During my time in Cold Spring, I worked for a local bank and was a music director for a local parish.  During this time, I felt God asking more of me.  So, after a series of failed negotiations, I “decided” to try out seminary and I entered Saint Vincent in Latrobe, PA. Which eventually led to today!
