Fr. Jeffrey Kirby – Former Nominal Catholic

April 30, 2024 No Comments

Fr. Kirby was raised nominally Catholic, with strong sense of right and wrong but no real understanding of what Catholicism was about. At a scouting retreat in his teens, some Evangelical friends started mocking Catholicism and it stunned him, because he had no idea if what they were saying about Catholicism was true, and if it was, how to defend it. 

That started for him a quest as a young man to learn not just the facts about Catholicism, but about the person of Jesus Christ. His faith caught fire, and the fruit of that search for a closer relationship with Jesus bore fruit in his discernment of a call to the priesthood.
