Welcome Fr. Anthony!
Fr. Anthony Nnodim joined the school as chaplain in January 2022. He was ordained to the priesthood in 2002, having been raised in a devout Catholic family. He served as a parish priest in Nigeria, teaching in the parish schools.
Students, staff, and parents are thrilled to have a priest on campus. Students are enjoying the opportunity for weekly reconciliation. Two Masses have been added each week before school begins for students, staff, and families who want to attend. Additionally, all school Masses are held during the school day on Tuesdays and Thursdays, with the Thursday Mass being held with the wider community at St. Mary's Parish in Cottonwood.
In addition to offering sacraments to the students and staff at the school, Fr. Anthony assists with weekend celebrations in the North Central Deanery. He also substitutes in classes as needed. He will begin teaching classes including Latin & Theology next school year. Fr. Anthony is the school's first chaplain.
