The First Days of a New Priest, with Guest Fr. Mitchell Brown


Bishop Wall sits down with his newest priest, Fr. Mitchell Brown, who was ordained in June of 2018 and was born and raised in the Diocese of Gallup. They compare notes on their first days as priests – including their first time hearing Confessions, offering the Mass, and having someone address them as “Father”.

“The thing that I noticed right away was how easy it is to love someone and how much you can love someone you’ve never even met.” – Fr.Mitchell Brown, on the first time he ever heard a stranger’s confession
