Father Lee Jirovsky has been named as the Interim Chief Administrator Officer as appointed by the Diocese of Lincoln for Falls City Sacred Heart School. The announcement was made last week in an e-mail sent to parishioners by Doug Goltz, Principal of Sacred Heart.
Fr. Jirovsky grew up on a farm near Seward, Nebraska and attended the University of Nebraska in Lincoln before entering St. Gregory the Great Seminary. After completing his Masters in Divinity from Mount Saint Mary’s, he was ordained a priest in 2006. Since then Fr. Jirovsky has served in Plattsmouth, Lincoln, and Hastings as a priest, teacher, and administrator. As Principal of St. Cecilia in Hastings he completed his Master’s in Educational Administration through the University of Notre Dame. The last four years he served as Assistant Chief Administrative Officer at Pius X to Fr. Meysenburg and was in residence at Sacred Heart Parish, Lincoln.
In the email, Goltz stated that Fr. Jirovsky would be an asset.
”Our greatest asset is our teachers, and they will work closely with Fr. Jirovsky. They work daily educating the heart, mind, and body of our students,” stated Goltz.
Fr. Jirovsky replaces Father Thomas Dunavan, as Chief Administrative Officer of Falls City Sacred Heart. Fr. Jirovsky will be priest in residence at Sts. Peter and Paul parish. Fr. Cole Kennett is appointed Parish Administrator.
Fr. Dunavan was replaced after he was placed on administrative leave by Bishop James Conley in early March.
