Fr. Joe Ananias, Charles Simeon Fellow

The Charles Simeon Institute instilled in me a belief that there is no greater joy in life than to serve God in his Church.  This gift has benefitted me the most, in shaping me for parish ministry. The priests at St. Peter's exude a sense that, for those whom God calls, being a parish priest is the greatest joy imaginable.
