Announcing Our New Pastor
Fr. Tim Sherwood
Effective July 1
Bishop Gregory Parkes announced that our new pastor for St. Brendan’s effective July 1 will be Fr. Timothy Sherwood. Fr. Tim is presently pastor of St. Raphael’s on Snell Isle, St. Petersburg.
He is a native of Missouri who grew up in rural America. Fr. Tim moved to Florida in 1983 after a four-year enlistment in the Navy. He is a convert to Catholicism who describes his path to the priesthood as a “crooked” one involving several directional changes and a variety of experiences. Fr. Tim has had a number of jobs including police work, landscaping and house painting.
Fr. Tim is a lifetime learner with a master’s degree in Story Arts and Reading, a doctorate of Ministry in Preaching and a doctorate in Leadership Studies with a concentration in rhetoric. In his own words, “All of my post-ordination studies have focused on preaching. My motivation for advanced studies was, and continues to be, very simple: self- improvement and continued growth. I enjoy the challenge and want to be the best priest I can be, with God’s help.”
