Father Brian J. Morris
I grew up in East Greenwich, RI attending Our Lady of Mercy School, Cole Junior High and Bishop Hendricken High School. I attended Wake Forest University and graduated in 2007 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business. I worked for four years in Washington, DC as a Financial Advisor and Certified Financial Planner for UBS Financial Services before hearing God's call to the priesthood. I entered Our Lady of Providence Seminary in 2011 and studied Philosophy at Providence College for two years. Then I was assigned to St. John's Seminary in Brighton, MA where I studied Theology and earned a Masters in Divinity. During my time as a seminarian I served summer assignments at Our Lady Queen of Martyrs in Woonsocket, St. Pius X in Westerly, St. Pauls in Cranston and served as a transitional deacon at St. Eugene's in Chepachet. Bishop Tobin ordained me a priest of Jesus Christ on June 3, 2017 and assigned me to St. Luke's parish as my first priestly assignment. I'm so very happy to be here and have enjoyed getting to know the many wonderful people and spend time with the kids at St. Luke's School. I enjoy playing just about any sport, watching movies and reading about history.
