Fr. Patrick Mary Briscoe has been appointed the Associate Executive Director of the Dominican Friars Foundation and the Promoter of Media for the Dominican Province of St. Joseph. Raised in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Fr. Patrick was ordained a priest in 2016, and served at St. Pius V parish in Providence, Rhode Island. He also served on special assignment for the Knights of Columbus in Krakow, Poland, as an organizer at the World Youth Day Mercy Centre.
Before joining the Dominican Order, Fr. Patrick attended Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota, where he studied philosophy and French literature. “As a student, I dedicated myself to studying the thought of St. Thomas Aquinas. Inspired by the Dominican friar who introduced me to St. Thomas, I was compelled to join the Order of Preachers, hoping to become the emissary for Christ he was for me.”
