Fr. Briscoe’s bio:
Raised in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Fr. Patrick has recently finished his studies in theology at the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, D.C. Ordained a priest in May 2016, he presently serves at St. Pius V parish in Providence, Rhode Island. He has two younger sisters–who are twins–and thus has no fear of picking fights, even when he’s outnumbered!
Fr. Patrick graduated from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota, where he majored in philosophy and French literature. Since joining the Dominican Order, he has served in campus ministry, as an intern at the Archdiocese of Washington, as a missionary in Kenya (alongside the Missionaries of Charity), and at St. Matthew’s Cathedral in Washington, DC. Following his ordination to the priesthood, he worked on special assignment for the Knights of Columbus in Krakow, Poland, as an organizer at the World Youth Day Mercy Centre.
Father Jay A. Finelli is a priest of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence. He was ordained to the diaconate on June 1, 1991 and to the priesthood on June 13, 1992 at the Cathedral of SS Peter & Paul in Providence by Bishop Louis E. Gelineau. He has served in several parishes and was appointed pastor of the Church of the Holy Ghost in Tiverton on July 1, 2002. Fr. Finelli is an avid Live Steam railroad enthusiast, and model railroader. He has built seven Live Steam locomotives and is a member of the Waushakum Live Steamers in Holliston, MA. Father is “insane Mac addict” and technophile. In September of 1995, Father entered the digital age, got online and within a week began building websites. His first two websites were for the Diocese of Providence and his second parish assignment. Since that time, Father has built a number of websites. Ten years later, almost to the day, Fr. Finelli made his next leap in the digital revolution. On September 1, 2005, Father began hosting the iPadre Catholic Podcast and has produced over 388 episodes since that time.
Father Finelli also serves or has served in the following manner:
