Fr. Francis FINNIGAN C.P.

Associate (Vicaire)

I am an American priest and member of the Congregation of the Passion (Passionist). I have been serving at St Joseph for almost 11 years. I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pa. USA. My mother and father have both passed away and I have one sister in the Pittsburgh area. I did my seminary training with the Passionist Monastery system and spent some time studying History at Fordam University. I was ordained in 1968. I spent a summer at Catholic University of America, studying Counselling. As a priest, I have engaged in Retreat Ministry for most of my life. I was both director of St Paul of the Cross Retreat House in Pittsburgh and for 15 years director of our Lady of Florida Spiritual Center in North Palm Beach. I spent two years as Pastor of St Ann’s Monastery Parish, Scranton, Pa. I also served in Hartford, Ct and Baltimore, Md. In 1985, I took a sabbatical and attended courses at the American college at Louvain, Belgium and spent three months studying Sacred Scripture in Jerusalem. I enjoy sports. Thank God for the internet, I am able to keep up with my favorite teams. I like reading and for relaxation, novels of intrigue and History. This email address is being protected from spambots.

We Care

Lenten Project 2017 will reach least fortunate people of Paris.

We Share

Catechism classes on Sunday mornings are held for ages 5-15. Classes run from September to mid-June except school holiday

We Inspire

For adults who seek to become Catholic, RCIA provides a gradual progress into understanding Catholic belief, a gentle growing involvement in this community, and friendship with other believers.

We Reconcile

It is called the sacrament of confession, since the disclosure or confession of sins to a priest is an essential element of this sacrament. All Year long: Sat 11:30am-12:30pm and 5pm-6pm.

We volunteer

St Joseph's volunteers help to provide a hot three course meal to around 60 needy people on the 4th Friday of each month, at the American Cathedral.

We are

Passionists. Caring. Faithful. St_Joseph. Passionate.

We, the Parish of St. Joseph, gather together to celebrate the sacraments, profess and live our faith, and grow spiritually. We follow the Lord's commands as we share our lives, gifts, and faith in reaching out to serve others.

To ensure the continued success of Parish activities and our spiritual growth as a vibrant Catholic community we need your participation, support and prayers. Don't hesitate to write to us.
