Welcome to Fr. Todd's Page

It is an honor to be pastor of this Area Faith Community and the parishes of St. Edward, Minneota, and St. Eloi, Ghent.

A little about me: I was born and raised in Wabasso, MN. I am the second of four children with an older brother and 2 younger sisters. I went to St. Anne's Elementary School Wabasso Public High School. I attended one year of college at the University of Minnesota - Morris. While there, I discerned that I should consider the priesthood. I transferred to the University of St. Thomas, and after receiving a Philosophy major and theology minor, graduated. From there, I continued my discernment and formation as a priest at the St. Paul Seminary School of Divinity at the University of St. Thomas. I was ordained a priest in 1999 by Bishop Fredrick Campbell as Bishop Lucker, our bishop, was hospitalized.

Since 2016, I have recorded most of my Sunday and Holy Day homilies and posted them as a podcast at View From the Ambo. You can find the links below. I also (infrequently) blog at frtodd.blogspot.com. Most of the podcasts are automatically set to post there, too (that link is also below).
