Fr. Bob Johnson
Fr. Bob's zeal and love for the Lord is contagious! He describes his greatest joy of being a priest as helping people "connect" with God, "especially during those moments when they experience God's love, joy and healing peace." He's recently returned to Detroit from being a missionary priest where he served in Antigua, West Indies, in elementary and high school eduation, radio, music and ecumenical ministry, and later as pastor of the Dutch-side of St. Maarten in the Caribbean, and as episcopal vicar for the islands of St. Maarten, Sava and St. Eustatius. Fr. Bob is now on board at St. Andrews in Rochester where he's busy spreading the joy of the Lord to all he meets!
Fr. Patrick Gonyeau
Once a fallen away Catholic, Fr. Patrick experienced a great period of conversion in his life, which not only led him back to the Catholic faith, but into the priesthood! He has a passion for seeing God at work in the lives of others, especially the "bringing home" of the lost, whom he believes he identifies very well with! Fr. Patrick is a bright and shining light for Christ in our world today. Beginning July 1, he will be serving as Associate Pastor of the Cathedral Cluster, consisting of The Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament, St Moses the Black Parish, and Our Lady of the Rosary Parish, and Central Region Evangelization Coordinator for the AOD.
