Kevin Miller was born and raised in the Irish Catholic neighborhood of the East End of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania in the heart of the anthracite coal region.
He attended the University of Scranton in Scranton, PA, earning a BS degree in chemistry and a commission in the Pennsylvania Army National Guard through the Army Reserve Officer Training Corps. Kevin retired at the rank of lieutenant colonel following 32 years of service in the Army; the last twenty years as a full-time Active Guard and Reserve officer in the PA Army National Guard. He is now enrolled in the Pre-Theology Program at Pope St. John XXIII National Seminary.
Kevin credits Father James Nash, a priest in the Diocese of Scranton, an alumnus of Pope St. John XXIII Seminary and his former high school English teacher, as having been influential and inspirational throughout his discernment of the call to priesthood.
