Reverend Edward Brienz leads the Propagation of the Faith and Missions Office. As such he encourages and promotes a missionary spirit and commitment to evangelization among our diocesan schools and parishes, as well as the people they serve. This involves communications and collaboration with the work of lay, diocesan and religious missionaries as they minister to those in the most grave and serious need, both in this nation and across the globe. Father Brienz acts as a resource to those discerning missions service, parish partnerships with missions abroad, as well as volunteer opportunities.

A life-long resident of the Mahoning Valley, his current pastoral ministries include Administrator of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish in McDonald, Sacramental Minister at Immaculate Heart of Mary Church in Austintown, Founder and Executive Director of Café Augustine Jobs Readiness Program and Augustine Transitional House for first time renters. He joyfully makes time for those who have interest in the missions.

Father divides his free time between family homes in Texas and Spain.
