New Pastor Installed

The Most Reverend Kevin C. Rhoades, Bishop of Fort Wayne-South Bend, leads the celebration of an installation Mass on Saturday to recognize Father David Violi, left, as the new pastor at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Bluffton. Father Violi was ordained as a priest in June 2016 and has assisted at three parishes in South Bend since then. St. Joseph is his first parish as pastor. Also concelebrating the Mass at the Bluffton church was Father Dennis Di Benedetto, right, who is a parochial vicar at St. Charles Borromeo Parish in Fort Wayne and a good friend of Father Violi. The St. Joseph parish held a reception to welcome Father Violi following the Mass. The parish’s former pastor, Msgr. Pius N. Ilechukwu, now is a parochial vicar at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Fort Wayne. (Photo by Geoff Frank for the News-Banner)
