Sharing faith experiences – Fr Joseph Shenosky
Welcome to our special program on the Year of Faith, THE FAITHFUL WITNESS, a series on the lives of Inspiring People and Witnesses of faith in the Catholic Church from around the world. These are people who lived their ordinary lives in extraordinary ways. They are examples of great fortitude and virtue. Their unique stories inspire us to be rooted in our faith. God calls each one of us today to inspire our brothers and sisters and to be witnesses of our faith.
The Faithful Witness of this week is Fr Joseph Shenosky. He is from the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the United States of America. This mechanical engineer-turned Catholic priest is presently the Director of Pastoral and Apostolic Formation at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Philadelphia. As a priest, and a formator, living and working with young seminarians, he encounters many challenges in his life and mission.
Our Faithful Witness of today, Fr Joseph Shenosky from the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA shares with us his faith experiences, inspirations, and the challenges he faced in his life and mission. Fr Shenosky, a very hearty welcome to Vatican Radio. We are very happy to have you with us today.
Tell us briefly about you.
Who were your inspirations to become a Catholic priest?
You are a formator, taking part in the formation of young people to priesthood. How do you see the faith of the young under your care in the seminary?
In your younger days, you witnessed a faith quite different from today. Does it challenge you?
Thank you Fr. Shenosky. That was Father Joseph Shenosky from the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA sharing with us his faith experiences.
