Fr. McElroy was ordained a deacon in the Lateran Basilica in Rome in 1987. Born in Newry, County Down, Ireland, Father McElroy attended Queens University, Belfast Ireland, where he studied educational theory and philosophy and began his studies for the priesthood. Following his graduation, he went on to the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome completing undergraduate and graduate studies in theology, specializing in Dogma. After ordination, Father oversaw the Diocese’s 14 high schools as Vicar of Education. At present Fr. Damian serves as Pastor of the beautiful parish of St. Catherine and St. Margaret, Springlake, NJ.
Father serves on various Trenton Diocesan Commissions as Dean and most recently served as Pastor of Our Lady of Good Counsel Church in Moorestown while hosting a theology program for LaSalle University. Father has lectured and given talks extensively for 30 years.
On this pilgrimage Father will celebrate daily mass and reflect on the teachings and journey of St. Paul with particular references to the development of the early Church.
The talks will be informative but also invite the participants to spiritual reflection on their own faith journey, and will be accompanied by a large helping of good humor and humanity.
Father looks forward to sharing faith and fun, as we journey together.
We do not currently have any tours for Fr. Damian McElroy.
