Fr. Bill Peterson C.Ss.R.
I’m from a large family, having eight sisters and five brothers. I’m also a twin (fraternal, not identical). My dad was an electrician; my mom (as we say) was a saint. I grew up in Portland, Oregon, attended Redemptorist seminaries around the USA, was ordained in 1967, worked as a priest in the west, the mid-west, in North Mexico (for a year), and Nigeria (for 20 years). I just turned 78, so I’m no kid, but I still hope to make a genuine contribution to the parish in English, Spanish, and “Nigerian.” My interests are sports, the news, and reading. In case anyone is wondering, I’ll be open to becoming a Twins and Vikings fan, but give me some time to “distance” myself from the Mariners and Seahawks.
