Dear Parishioners,

Greetings in Christ! My name is Fr. Anthony Chibueze Onu, and I am honored to join this parish as your new Parochial Vicar. I am especially excited to be back with you, having spent last

summer here. It is a privilege to embark on this journey with you and to serve our parish community.

I was born in the Southeastern part of Nigeria and am proud to be of Igbo ethnicity. I came to the United States in 2017 and have been part of the Diocese of Albany since 2018. My formation included two years in Albany, during which I also pursued a master’s degree in Catholic Philosophy. In 2020, I continued my theological studies at Mundelein Seminary in Illinois,

graduating this past spring. By the grace of God, I was ordained to the Catholic priesthood in May of this year and was blessed to be assigned to this wonderful community. As your Parochial Vicar, I am here to assist Fr. Jim in serving our parish. I am eager to learn and grow alongside you as a young priest. I look forward to meeting each of you and getting to know your stories as we journey together in faith. Please feel free to say hello anytime.

Thank you for welcoming me into your parish family. I am excited about the journey ahead and the opportunity to grow together in faith. May God bless you and keep you always.

In Christ,

Fr. Anthony Chibueze Onu
