Last weekend we met Father Vinod and received his first priestly blessing at all Masses. Father Vinod was born January 1, 1985, in Kollam, which is located in the Southern part of Kerala, India. He had a wish to become a priest even in his earliest years.
He joined the Piarist Fathers in Aroor, India in June 2000 and he studied his final year of theology in the Dominican House of Studies and Catholic University of America, DC.
In 2018, May He graduated from Saint Joseph Seminary and College, Yonkers with a B.Th. and M Div. degrees. He was ordained a priest in his home parish in India on August 4th, 2018. Now he is a religion teacher at Cardinal Gibbons High School in Fort Lauderdale. The students call him Father V for short. He will assist, when possible at Saint Paul’s on weekends! Welcome Father!
