Fr. Chris (B. Phil, M.Div., Th. M., S.T.L., Ph. D.) has been the presbyter of the Fall River Diocese for the past 23 years. In 1990 an American Seminary invited him to study Pastoral Theology. While working with the Fall River Diocese and ordination by Bishop O’Malley, he has served at several parishes in Fall River, New Bedford, and Attleboro area. Prior to joining SPX Fr. Chris mainly worked as parochial vicar, chaplain and administrator on the rotating basis. Last year, Bishop da Cunha appointed him parochial vicar at St. Pius X.
Throughout life, he developed the passion for old vehicle restoration, philosophy and theology studies, good books, chess. Chess may just be the best game in the world, because it combines the aspects of different sport tactics, planning, bravery and risk-taking — plus provides often a stimulating conversation around a cup of tea. He likes classical music, movies, reading and picking up right mushrooms at Cape Cod. Fr. Chris also enjoys volleyball, soccer, healthy food and playing guitar in his free time.
