Rev. Daniel Young
“Hello!” I am Father Dan Young and Bishop Fisher has assigned me to your family of parishes. I will reside at the St. Raphael rectory. I look forward to meeting you and serving you as a Senior Parochial Vicar. I was ordained to the Priesthood by Bishop Head on May 5, 1995. The last 21 years I have been a pastor at various parishes. I am coming from Good Shepherd Parish in Pendleton and Clarence Center and was there for 15 years.
I grew up in Wilson, New York and attended Wilson Central High School...graduating in 1983 (yes it's my 40th anniversary). I attended Daemen College and Christ the King Seminary. My parents were Ralph and Betty Young (both deceased). Dad was a 7th Grade Math teacher at Wilson Central and Mom was a devoted care giver of our family. I have two wonderful sisters...I'm in the middle of them. I have two grown nephews and one niece. I am the proud great Uncle of a nephew and niece. I enjoy reading and watching Law and Order (my uncle had his doctorate in criminology). I love to solve mysteries. I'm sure I got that from my Uncle. I am a huge fan of coffee from Tim Hortons.
