Fr. Joseph Gill, hailing from the Diocese of Bridgeport, CT, has been in ministry for over 15 years, preaching the Gospel to teens and adults alike. With music, humor, sincerity, and clarity, he expounds upon the Catholic faith in a way that is relatable, attractive, and inspiring. Along with giving talks, he integrates music into his ministry, playing guitar and piano.
Fr. Joseph Gill was born in Maryland in 1984. He was homeschooled growing up, being the oldest of five kids in a devout Catholic family. His faith was awakened as a high school student as a result of retreats and Eucharistic Adoration, and he felt a call to the priesthood. He attended Franciscan University of Steubenville for undergrad, serving on retreat teams and founding a Catholic youth ministry in Steubenville. Upon graduation, he attended Mount St. Mary's Seminary in Maryland and was ordained a priest in 2013. While in seminary, he continued his youth work, starting several youth programs and giving talks to people of all ages. Since ordination, he has served in two parishes and as a chaplain of a Catholic high school.
In addition to his priestly ministry, he has also used music for the glory of God, having produced three albums of Christian music - the latest, "No Lasting City", was released in 2014 and is available on iTunes. He plays guitar and piano and tours with his band leading music at retreats and Adoration.
