Bro. Ignatius Weiss, O.P.

    1992
  • Alma Mater:
    Franciscan University of Steubenville
  • Location:
    Hicksville, NY

Brother Ignatius Weiss was raised on Long Island, NY, the third of four sons. He spent most of his youth attending Holy Family Parish in Hicksville. His vocational journey began while at Chaminade High School, where a life of virtue and the love of virtue were nourished. He received a Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy from Franciscan University of Steubenville before entering the Order. While a student and member of the Priestly Discernment Program, he recognized a desire to preach truth and love to a world which so lacked those values. “I found in the Order of Preachers a community- a family- of men who strive to live the Gospel and bring that to others. Receiving from Christ the Good News of salvation, we joyfully announce His Mercy to the world.”
