“I can’t even begin to explain how excited I am to join the Bishop Carroll team here in the coming months. Bishop Carroll has a reputation of excellence, whether it be academically, spiritually, or athletically, and now to have the opportunity to be a part of this school and tradition is exciting to say the very least. Please keep me in prayer as I begin this transition in my priesthood, and I look forward to having the chance to meet all of you in the Bishop Carroll community in the coming months.”
Please welcome Fr. Ed to our community and we are so blessed to have an additional priest who will be working with Fr. Sam and will teach and serve our students and staff.
