Fr. Carleton P. Jones, OP: Former Episcopal Priest

September 23, 2002 3 Comments

Father Jones was raised Unitarian and Congregationalist in New Hampshire. His parents were active and alive intellectually. From them he learned authority and obedience. In high school he became active in the Episcopal Church. After graduating from Yale University, he entered seminary and was ordained an Episcopal priest, later joining the Anglican religious community known as the Cowley Fathers. Reading the works of Blessed John Henry Cardinal Newman led him to be received into the Catholic Church, in 1982. Later, he was ordained as a Catholic priest in the Dominican Order.
