Archbishop William E. Lori  announced six clergy assignments Sept. 3, including two new pastors who are Baltimore natives.
Redemptorist Father Richard Poetzel is the new pastor of Our Lady of Fatima in Baltimore, where he had served as an associate pastor since 1993.
Raised in Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish in Highlandtown and ordained in 1963, he served for 20 years at the Redemptorists’ major seminary, Mount St. Alphonsus in Esopus, N.Y., as a librarian, professor of liturgical theology, academic dean, and acting president. From 1985 to 1987, he was rector of the St. John Neumann Residence in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., the Redemptorists’ home for confreres needing skilled-nursing care.
