Padraig, Father is a native of Alaska, and says he was very mischievous as a youth. He and his friends used to try and shoot holes in the ears of moose with their 22s until one turned and chased him. His full name is Kermit Syron and he was ordained in Rome in 1991 by St. John Paul II. He was a late vocation and is now almost 70. Safe in the Refuge of the Immaculate Heart!
