Getting to know Fr. Patrick

Fr. Patrick was born in Seattle and raised in Covington, WA.  He attended Western Washington University and graduated with a degree in English Literature and a secondary education teaching certificate.  At WWU he was introduced to the Catholic faith through campus ministry and was called to convert to Catholicism.  After teaching middle school for a brief period, he entered seminary and attended Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. and the University of St. Mary of the Lake in Mundelein, Illinois. He was ordained to the priesthood by Archbishop Sartain at St. James Cathedral in June, 2016.  After ordination, he spent a year as a parochial vicar at St. Mary Magdalen parish in Everett, and another year as a parochial vicar at St. Paul, St. Edward, St George and St. Peter parishes in south Seattle.

Fr. Patrick is an avid golfer and loves to explore different courses.  He is a dedicated, lifelong Mariner fan, and has spent hours reading about the history of the game as a boy. He also cheers on the Seahawks and Seattle Thunderbirds. Especially in the winter months he enjoys chess, backgammon and cribbage, is interested in movies and books, and loves Mexican food.

Let us all welcome Fr. Patrick to our community!
