Father Eric Silva
I’m from Cranston, RI where I attended St. Mark Church in Cranston. I went to Bishop Hendricken High School and the University of Rhode Island where I graduated with a BA in Communications. I always had dreams of being a sports broadcaster so my last six months of college I worked for Clear Channel Communications in Providence where I got my start producing Pawtucket Red Sox games on the radio. But I also knew God was calling me to the priesthood, so later that fall I resigned to begin my first year of seminary in 2013 at St. John’s Seminary in Boston.
I’m also an only child. I’m an avid Boston sports fan. In my free time, I enjoy reading about Church history and biographies of historical figures. I enjoy playing golf (although I’m terrible!), going to coffee shops, and recently I’ve even started to learn how to cook and find it very relaxing.
