Fr. David Pellican
Fr. David Pellican came to Divine Child as an associate pastor in July 2020. He attended Sacred Heart Major Seminary for eight years before his ordination on June 6, 2020.
Fr. David grew up in a large Catholic family, where he and his seven sisters were taught a strong commitment to their faith. While he felt a call to the priesthood at a young age, he didn't initially pursue it. "As a teen, I mostly wanted to live an ordinary life, and though I heard the call to the priesthood when I was young, most of high school was spent trying to ignore it," he said. " It was not that I doubted God's call; I doubted whether I could really be happy giving up a family of my own. Eventually I decided to trust him, and followed his call into seminary."
In his spare time, Fr. David enjoys the outdoors and related hobbies (i.e. hiking, fishing, etc.).
