Fr. John Fletcher, CC

What was your background before you became a priest?
Iworked as and Industrial Engineer, Computer Consultant and Bartender.  The year prior to my joining the CCs I was involved in youth ministry with Rejoice! Ministries in northern California.

What led you to join the Companions of the Cross?
After discerning that God could be calling me to the priesthood, I visited the CCs and immediately felt "at home".  The seminarians and priests that I met were very welcoming.  Most of the men I spoke with attributed their vocation in some way to Our Blessed Mother which was important to me since it was through her intercession that I came to practice my faith.
