Fr. Damian Flanagan
Fr. Damian Flanagan was born in 1962 in Thurles, County Tipperary, Ireland, to a close-knit rural family. He came to the United States in 1992 as an ordained priest for the Archdiocese of Miami..
Before he became a priest, he considered the possibility of devoting himself entirely to music as a violinist. His intense desire to assist others in finding the deepest meaning of life was the most important reason for his becoming a priest. Throughout his priesthood, Fr. Flanagan’s greatest joy has been helping and supporting others.
Fr. Damian enjoys playing the violin, and it has been a constant companion in his years of ministry. He has served several parishes in the Archdioceses of Miami such us: Good Shepherd, St. Catherine of Sienna, St. Augustine, St. Andrews, St. Gregory and now St. Hugh. He was also chaplain at Our Lady of Lourdes Academy.
