Fritz Anacreon
Class Year

Fritz was born in Port- au- Prince, Haiti, to a Catholic family of 5 children. Before entering the doors at Pope St. John XXIII, he was a missionary and has worked his way through theological studies toward acceptance for priestly formation here in Weston.

“My parents are very attached to the principles of the Catholic Church, and they enrolled me in the Petit Seminary College Saint Martial (PSCSM) in Port-au-Prince. I took part in a vocational day in my parish with Bishop Lafontant presiding. In his homily, he spoke on vocations, sharing that God sends an invitation to each of us.  I was attracted by this and felt within myself that the gospel was addressing me directly. I shared this with my mother, and she told me ‘If you really want to become a priest, if you really feel that God chose you, you have to be sincere with God and with yourself.  And above all, you have to dive into prayer…’ I wondered, how I am going to do it? Leave everything to follow Christ?  After meeting with the priest, and especially my spiritual director, I came to understand that the most important thing in life is God.”
