FT. COLLINS – Please say hello to Deacon Glenn Breed!
Deacon Glenn, at St. Joseph Catholic Parish for the summer, is a fourth-generation Wyoming native. He grew up in the Cheyenne area and completed his education in geophysics at the University of Wyoming and the University of Texas. He then worked for British Petroleum in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and the United States for 35 years. He retired and moved back to Wyoming in 2005.
In 2006, Deacon Glenn was called by God to pursue a vocation to the priesthood. He completed an M.A. in Theology in July of 2010 with a focus in Sacred Scripture at Holy Apostles College and Seminary in Cromwell, Connecticut. He is a member of the Society of the Missionaries of the Holy Apostles. Deacon Glenn received his master’s in Divinity at Holy Apostles in 2015. God willing, he will be ordained to the priesthood in 2016.
Deacon Glenn is pursuing a Ph.D. in Biomedical Ethics at Catholic University of America. He plans to teach at the Holy Apostles College and Seminary in the St. John Paul II Bioethics Center, Cromwell, Connecticut, as well as give retreats on biomedical ethical issues facing the Church and society.
End-of-life issues are a major topic today and Deacon Glenn believes we as Catholics need to be preemptive rather than reactive when it comes to biomedical ethics. We also need to know the teachings of the Church related to existing and new medical and biological technologies.
“I have been blessed to be able to combine theology and science to better understand these issues,” says Deacon Glenn. “It is a great pleasure for me to serve at St. Joseph Parish this summer.”
Welcome, Deacon Glenn!
