Welcome Father Flavin

I’m happy to announce Father James Flavin has taken up residence at St. Bridget’s Rectory.   A priest of the Archdiocese of Boston & a counselor, Father Flavin is currently part of the leadership & care team at St. John Vianney Center located in Downingtown, PA.

SJVC is a mental health care facility operated by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia for priests & religious in need of treatment.  While Downingtown is not around the corner from East Falls, Father Flavin wants to live in a Rectory not far from the airport. That’s because a large part of his work also involves traveling around the country to give clergy workshops; as well as traveling to personally accompany a priest or religious in need of inpatient care at SJVC.

I’m not sure how often we’ll see Father Flavin due to his professional commitments and travel schedule but I’m happy to welcome him to St. Bridget’s & I’m sure you are too.

Welcome Father Flavin!
