Fr Bryan

Greetings to OLOLís Parishioners:

I was born on November 14, 1983, at Charity Hospital in New Orleans and raised in Metairie, where I attended St. Clement of Rome Church. It was at St. Clement that I first felt an attraction to the priesthood based on a love for the Holy Mass and a desire to teach people about Godís love for us and how we can better love God in our lives. After I graduated from Grace King High School in 2003, I enter St. Joseph Seminary College (affectionately known as St. Benís), which is located at St. Joseph Abbey in Covington. After graduating I attended Notre Dame Seminary on Carrollton Ave. My diaconate internship was at St. Ann Church and Shrine. I was ordained a priest on June 4, 2011. My first assignment was at Visitation of Our Lady Church in Marrero for 2 years. Then I went to Divine Mercy Church in Kenner for 3 years. Finally, Iíve had one year as Associate Pastor at St. Peter Church in Covington.

I greatly look forward to coming to Our Lady of Lourdes for my first assignment as pastor. Iím keeping all of you in my prayers and hope that you will pray for me as well, that we may all journey together in the Lord, grow in faith, hope, and love, and be more and more united to the Sacred Heart of Jesus as one community in Christ.
