Boylan Catholic High School will have to start looking for new leadership now that its principal and superintendent has been appointed the pastor of Sycamore's St. Mary Parish.
Bishop David J. Malloy announced Friday that Father Paul Lipinski will succeed Father Frank Timar, who will retire on January 10. Timar has been at St. Mary's since 1990 and first worked as an administrator before spending 21 years as pastor.
The replacement comes after a meeting Malloy held with the Provincial from the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart, who will no longer be able to staff the parish after Timar's retirement due to a lack in local resources.
"We are extremely grateful to the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart and Father Timar for more than two decades of service and care provided to our diocese through St. Mary Parish and school in Sycamore," Bishop Malloy said.
Executive Assistant Principal Jerry Kerrigan will be interim principal at Boylan after Father Lipinski moves on. Lipinski was named principal in 2008 and superintendent in 2010.
