    Bishop Estevez

    Bishop Felipe J. Estévez was born Feb. 5, 1946 in Havana, Cuba and arrived in the United States on an Operation Pedro Pan flight as a teenager. He was ordained in 1970 and has done extensive studies in spiritual theology, earning a doctorate from Gregorian University in Rome. He is fluent in English, Spanish, French and Italian. Appointed Auxiliary Bishop on Nov. 21, 2003, and ordained Jan. 7, 2004, he oversaw the archdiocese’s Ministry of Pastoral Services including family life, youth, campus, prison and respect life ministries, as well as all church movements and new communities. On April 27, 2011, Pope Benedict XVI named Auxiliary Bishop Felipe J. Estévez the tenth Bishop of St. Augustine. He was installed on June 2, 2011 at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Jacksonville.

    Deacon Scott Conway

    Bishop Felipe J. Estévez appointed Deacon Scott J. Conway of Spring Hill to succeed Superintendent Patricia Bronsard in 2015. “I am impressed with the remarkable energy that Deacon Scott brings to the job of building Catholic identity in our schools and in a spirit of collaboration imbued in the best tradition of high levels of excellence and competence,” Estévez said. Prior to this assignment, Conway served as principal of Notre Dame Catholic School in Spring Hill, where enrollment increased from 32 students to 230 in three years. He said the increase can be credited to an understanding that the culture and environment at a parish school must be Christ-centered. Prior to serving at Notre Dame Catholic School, Conway served as vice principal at Christ the King Catholic School in Tampa and Bishop McLaughlin Catholic High School in Spring Hill, in the Diocese of St. Petersburg.

    DoSA has 1 Morning Star School and 1 Morning Star Program at St. Patrick Interparish School, both of which serve students with exceptionalities.
