Congratulations and many blessings to Father Philip Johnson, ordained to the Priesthood in Raleigh, North Carolina on Saturday January 7th! He was ordained by Bishop Burbidge. Bishop Senior was there together with St. Charles seminarians and faculty.
Father Philip Johnson, ‘16, is both a blessing and a miracle! In 2008, Philip Johnson, Naval Officer, was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. He was told that the median survival time for his cancer was less than two years. Despite the many difficulties he was facing, Philip followed his desire to become a priest, and entered St. Charles Borromeo Seminary.
