Fr. Bork is coming to us from St. Rita Church in Alexandria. Fr. Bork was born in Evansville, Indiana, graduated from Notre Dame University and then earned a doctorate in physics from Washington University in St. Louis. He taught at Christendom College in Front Royal before entering Mount St. Mary Seminary in Emmitsburg, Maryland.

After his ordination to the priesthood in 1995, he served as parochial vicar of St. Michael Church in Annandale as his first assignment as a priest. He has spent the last twenty-five years at many parishes all around the diocese and we are excited to welcome him to Holy Trinity as parochial vicar.

Homily for Easter Sunday Mass (OF 4/4/21)

“..What’s new about the New Covenant is us, not God. God doesn’t change. What’s revealed in Christ, in His Cross, in His Resurrection is what St. Paul says is the plan of God, which is laying hidden from the beginning of the world… Jesus is the revelation of the Father, if we don’t understand that, we have a very, very compromised, stupid faith….”
