Father Kevin Sweeney is a priest of the Diocese of Orange who has spent most of his priesthood as a Military chaplain with the Navy and Marine Corps. Fr. Sweeney is a Captain in the U.S. Navy and currently the Command Chaplain for the Marine Corps Base at Camp Pendleton.
Father Jerome and Father Kevin have known each other for many years from the time when Father Sweeney entered the seminary as a parishioner at St Joachim Church in Costa Mesa. Father Sweeney looks forward to joining our parish community and proclaiming the Good News of Jesus for us as we grow in faith. He will officially begin his ministry as Pastor beginning July 1st. But he will be around the parish before that!
