Welcome Father Casey

FatherCaseyOn behalf of the faculty and staff at Saint James School, we are excited to officially welcome Father Michael Casey to the Saint James School family.  If you have not yet had the privilege of meeting Father Casey, it is likely you will soon as he plans to be (and has already been) a regular presence at the school and at school functions.

Father Casey is a native of Waterbury where he attended Saint Francis Xavier School and Holy Cross High School before entering Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary in Wynnewood, Pennsylvania.  Following his time at Saint Charles he spent four years at North American College in Rome.  Father Casey was ordained in Hartford on May 11, 2013 by Archbishop Mansell.  He then returned to Rome for an additional year to continue his studies toward a Licentiate in Sacred Theology (S.T.L) degree.  He returned from Rome and was officially assigned to Saint James Parish in July.

Saint James School is very blessed to have Father Casey joining our school family!   He welcomes parents to contact him at fathercasey@stjamesmanchester.org (or by calling the Saint James Church rectory) if they have questions about their child(ren)’s religious education or regarding their own faith.  In addition, Father Casey is leading a pilgrimage to Italy this coming June and would love to have some Saint James School families among his companions.  Please click HERE for more details on the trip.
