John Ippolito
Class Year

Born and raised in Staten Island, New York, John worked in the area of rehabilitation before entering PSJS. John worked as both a Rehabilitation Practitioner and a Director of Rehabilitation with experience treating patients who sustained spinal cord injuries and cerebral vascular accidents.

“I have been thinking about the priesthood since I have been in College, ‘politely ignoring’ the calling throughout the years but the ‘gravitational pull’ to this vocation has become much stronger. One important reason that God is calling me to PSJS is that the seminarians are older, more mature, and have had a prior career. I spoke with alumni and current seminarians and they assisted me in understanding that interactions here will be professional, intellectual, spiritual, and mature. I truly believe that this seminary will nurture my vocation.”
