St. Joseph Proto-Cathedral in Bardstown and St. Michael Parish in Fairfield recently welcomed a new pastor, who arrived in the area at the end of June.
Wilfredo Fernandez, 34, was recently ordained into the priesthood for the Archdiocese of Louisville and is ready for his first assignment.
“This is an experience for me,” Fernandez said. “Since I am not in school anymore, I’m not in this little bubble that we used to have that protects us from everything.”
But he is excited for his new adventure.
