Fr. Christopher Fadok was born in 1968. Raised in Phoenix, Arizona, he attended Catholic grade school at Most Holy Trinity Parish and high school at Brophy College Preparatory. In 1986 he received an Air Force ROTC scholarship and studied engineering in Chicago. His thoughts at that time turned to God and philosophy and in 1987 he began to study philosophy at the University of Arizona in Tucson.

From the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology he received the degrees Master of Philosophy in 2006 and Master of Divinity in 2010. He was ordained to the priesthood in 2010 and ministers as a parish priest with an emphasis on the New Evangelization. Fr. Christopher’s other interests include playing the drums, listening to jazz, and distance running. He also loves to explore his Ukrainian Catholic heritage.

Fr. Christopher points to his mother and father, brothers and sisters, and their spouses–his entire family–as the greatest school of love and self-sacrifice he has known. He therefore credits all of them with building up in him the strength to happily receive the grace of his religious vocation.

Deacon Charles Seagren was born in 1949 in Los Angeles. He studied mathematics and classical Greek at the University of Illinois and then worked in computer software as a career. He retired at the age of 50 and the day afterward started volunteer work with Mother Teresa’s sisters, the Missionaries of Charity, at a hospice in Pacifica. He continues to work there each week. It is wonderful to see the peace and joy that the sisters bring to their service of the poor and dying. It’s the Gospel in action.
