Br. Brendan, OCCO

Hello and greetings to all in the Cistercian Order of the Holy Cross. I just wanted to share a few words with you so you can know a bit about me. First I am happily married to a wonderful woman, Kevyn. We have three grown kids and a beautiful daughter in law. The married pair has blessed us with our first grandchild, Jude the Dude.

I was ordained a priest on Easter of 2000 and since then I have been a parish priest here in Oklahoma City and gained my PhD in Pastoral Counseling. I have worked for 20 years with the Bureau of Prisons and will retire in December of 2010, and hope to spend more time in the ministry of counseling.

I have felt a calling to a monastic life even before I gave my life to Christ. I am very excited to enter this journey with you. I look forward to getting to know and serve with each you.

God’s richest blessings.
