Hello, my name is Bill Frantz and I am beginning a new role as Pastoral Associate. This is my sixth year at St. Veronica, and I feel truly blessed to be part of this great parish.
As the Pastoral Associate at St. Veronica I oversee all facets of Faith Formation in the parish, direct the development of Small Groups, Parish Renewal and Youth Ministry. I also serve as staff liaison to the Faith Formation Commission, and oversee the Coordinator for Children's Faith Formation and the Coordinator for RCIA.
I have been in parish ministry for 27 years. I have been a Pastoral Associate, a Business, Manager, a Parish Administrator, and a Director of Religious Education. I hold a bachelor's degree in Psychology and a Masters degree in Theology from the University of Dayton. In 2012, I completed a Certificate in Pastoral Administration from the Athenaeum of Ohio.
I grew up in Sidney, Ohio and attended Holy Angels grade school and Lehman Catholic High School. I am married to Jane, my wife, best friend and gift from God for 26 years. We have 3 children. Jacob who is beginning his teaching career at Christian County High School in Hopkinsville, KYy. Lillian, a sophomore at the University of Kentucky, and Katherine, a sophomore at Holy Cross High School in Covington, KY.
I live in Taylor Mill, KY and my family and I are parishioners at St. Francis De Sales Parish in East Walnut Hills.
In my free time I like to golf, attend my children's cross country races, read, hang out with my family, and root for the Reds.
My dream for St. Veronica Parish is to become a vibrant parish, filled with people seeking to become intentional disciples of Jesus Christ as we live, teach and proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
