A post to the institution’s website on Monday announced that Father David Endres will succeed Father Earl Fernandes as dean of the Athenaeum of Ohio and Mount St. Mary’s Seminary.

“I am happy to announce that I am appointing Father David Endres as dean of the Athenaeum of Ohio and Mount St. Mary’s Seminary,” said Father Benedict O’Cinnsealaigh, president and rector. “He has served for the last five years at the Athenaeum and Mount St. Mary’s as professor of history, director of field education, and a member of the seminary formation team. We wish Fr. Endres well as he begins his new appointment.”

The announcement follows news that Father Fernandes, who has served as dean for the past eight years, will be joining the staff of the Papal Nuncio in Washington, D.C., effective March 6.

Following ordination to the priesthood in 2009, Father Endres was assigned to St. Albert the Great Parish, Kettering, Ohio, and to the faculty of Bishop Fenwick High School, Middletown.

As dean, the 36-year-old priest will be the chief academic officer of the Athenaeum responsible for maintaining and improving the quality of academic programs and coordinating the recommendations for course schedules and faculty assignments.
