Fr. Joe Freedy
Fr. Joe played quarterback at the University of Buffalo and was a welcome face on campus; he partied hearty with his buddies and had a girlfriend he thought he would marry. But just before his Senior year, he called a life changing audible that perhaps he was meant to follow a different path. Fr. Joe is now Vocations Director in the Diocese of Pittsburgh, where young men, seminarians and others, are attracted to what he has to say, because they hear a message that speaks to their soul in a way they haven't quite heard before. Come and be inspired by Fr. Joe, the way so many others have!

He's recently returned to Detroit from being a missionary priest where he served in Antigua, West Indies, in elementary and high school education, 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, Saba and St. Eustatius. Fr. Bob is currently Associate Pastor at St. Andrew's parish in Rochester where he helps people experience the love and hope of Jesus Christ.
