Fr Ben will be in residence at St Michael's
...while working on his Licentiate in Sacred Theology degree at Jesuit School of Theology of Santa Clara University in Berkeley. Born in the mountain province in northern Philippines, he's from a large family of five children. He was ordained a deacon in 2006, and a priest in 2007. He served at St Leo the Great in Oakland from 2017 until arriving at St Michael's this month. Fr Ben is excited to join our vibrant community, and will be helping our parish with celebrating the sacraments while he's working on his studies.
