Father Paul Pierce was born in Hawaii. A member of The Neocatechumenal Way, an itinerary of Christian formation that takes its inspiration from the catechumenate of the early Church, Father Paul was baptized at age 19.
After Baptism he volunteered to go on mission through the upper Mid-West and later to the Southwest. Gradually, his calling became clear. “I knew that to do the will of God would be my happiness,” he said. “Somehow the Lord gave me that grace, to trust him. And he has not disappointed.”
Father Paul was ordained by Archbishop Wenski on May 8, 2021, and St. Hugh is his first parish.
