Father Keith Virus – Pastor

Father Keith Virus

We welcomed Father Keith as our pastor in 2005. Filling the shoes of his predecessor wasn’t easy, but it wasn’t long before he warmed our hearts and we fell in love with him.

He has a warm spirit and a gift for communicating the message of the gospel each and every Sunday.

Father Keith has no associate priests assigned to our parish, so the demands on his time can be overwhelming. He often is darting from commitment to commitment, but does so with a generous heart. Since he can’t be in two places at once, he makes certain a deacon attends an event when there is a scheduling conflict. He cares deeply for his flock and is determined to meet their needs.

Father Keith was ordained more than 20 years ago, and has spent time at St Michael’s in Schererville, St Maria Goretti in Dyer, and St Thomas More in Munster. Everywhere he goes, people love him, and hate to see him go.

Even in today’s challenging times, both morally and financially, our parish has flourished under his leadership. Father Keith is a great priest, and a great person. We hope he stays with us for a very long time.
