William Patrick Long
Class Year

The second of six children, Patrick grew up a cradle Catholic in Sarasota, Florida and spent most of his business career in Healthcare Marketing. By being involved in various ministries at different times, including Eucharistic Minister, Religious Education, Youth Group Ministry and Pro-Life Work as well as his daily reception of the Eucharist, recitation of the Rosary, and regular Spiritual Direction, Patrick says God’s call became clear. When the Diocese recommended PSJS, Patrick was pleased to be going to a seminary staffed by Diocesan priests, many of whom have served in active parishes.

“I am grateful for the opportunity to study at Pope St. John XXIII Seminary. I appreciate the balanced approach by the seminary with their genuine focus on of the Four Dimensions of Priestly Formation: Human, Spiritual, Intellectual and Pastoral.”
