Fr. Brian has been an Oblate of St Joseph since his first profession of vows in 1985. He is the fourth of six children and first felt his call to a religious vocation at the age of 12. He was ordained a priest in 1992 and has served various positions in the Oblates including vocation director of the former California Province from 1996 to 2003. He has once again been assigned Vocation Director, now of the Holy Spouses Province in the Unites States. He is very happy and blessed to be able to assist others, particularly young men, to discover God’s call and fulfill their role in the Church with a joyful and peaceful heart.
