Fr. Sean Wilson
Pastor
Fr. Sean was ordained May 21, 2016 and was assigned to the Petersburg Parishes as the Parochial Vicar. On July 1, 2018 he began as the pastor of the parishes. He enjoys staring at maps for an unreasonably long time and playing a little golf in his free time. As a parish priest, any number of things happen in a day: daily Mass, confessions, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, teaching groups and classes, administration, leadership, declarations of nullity, anointing of the sick, and anything else. For most things, it is best to contact the office first. The parish office can schedule meetings with him, get the ball rolling on your wedding plans, and get you to the right team member.
