Frank D’Amato was raised in Deerfield Beach, FL, which he still calls home. After graduating from Florida Atlantic University with a BA in Communications, he worked for many years in the luxury resort, golf, and convention industry, a career that allowed him to travel the world. Frank is one of three children, with five nieces and nephews. Frank recalls hearing God’s call to discern the priesthood while praying in Lourdes, France. “I feel so blessed to be part of the Pope St. John XXIII seminary community,” he said.
