Welcome Bishop Neil Tiedemann

We welcome our new pastor for Saint Matthias.  He is our newly appointed Auxiliary Bishop, Bishop Neil Tiedemann.  Born in Brooklyn in 1948, he professed perpetual vows in the Passionist Order in 1974 and was ordained to the priesthood in 1975. Bishop Neil served in numerous pastoral assignments in our Diocese, as well as in Massachusetts, New Jersey and Honduras. He served as pastor in Visitation Parish, Red Hook, for seven years. He was ordained a Bishop in 2008 and was named the third Bishop of Mandeville, Jamaica. We expect Bishop Neil to come to Saint Matthias in late July or the beginning of August, after making his transition in the Diocese of Mandeville. We look forward to your leadership & ministry to the people of St. Matthias!
