Bro. Stephen Ruhl, O.P.

  • Alma Mater
    Providence College
  • Location
    Long Island, NY

Brother Stephen Ruhl was born and raised on Long Island, NY, the eldest of three siblings. Brought up in a Catholic family, he attended St. Gertrude’s Parish in Bayville, NY throughout his childhood. He came to truly know and love the faith at Chaminade High School, which was also his introduction to religious life. He first met the Dominicans at Providence College, where he received a B.A. in French. “When I first met the friars at Providence College, their passion for the Gospel and the salvation of souls was evident. As I came to know them, and their life, more fully, I realized that God was calling me to adopt this way of life, in the footsteps of St. Dominic, as my own.”
