St. Louis Catholic Church in Princeton is getting a new pastor after learning that the Reverend Jefferey Stirniman is leaving. This past weekend, parishioners received a notice in their church bulletin announcing the reassignment of Stirniman to other parishes in Bloomington and Wapella. The notice also says Father Daniel Gifford will be the parish’s new leader. Gifford, ordained in 2012, is currently an assistant pastor in Peoria and assistant chaplain of the Newman Center at Bradley University. Father Stirniman’s last day at St. Louis is Monday August 21st. An open house to wish him well is planned for Sunday, August 20th from 1 to 5 pm.
