Fr. ShaughnessyT

Greetings all.  My name is Fr. Dan Shaughnessy.  Ordained in May 2012 at the age of 41, I have been a priest of the Archdiocese of St. Louis for a little over 9 years.  Originally trained as an architect (Washington University, B.A. in Architecture, 1993 and Master of Architecture, 1996), I took the scenic route to seminary, beginning my studies in 2006.  As I look back over the last 50+ years (I was born in 1970), I regularly marvel at all of the holy “bread crumbs” that our Father in Heaven left for me as I discerned a call the Priesthood of Jesus Christ.  I am delighted that Jane Guenther invited me to participate in this prayer/renewal/healing group.  I look forward to our time together.  

                 Yours in Christ, Fr. Dan Shaughnessy
