Fr. Kenneth is originally from Londonderry, New Hampshire. He grew up in a small Catholic family; with his only sibling being a younger brother. The faith was always very much alive in his family's home, especially as witnessed to by his mother, who instilled a deep love for God and for neighbor. Growing up, Fr. Kenneth enjoyed playing sports, hiking, camping and fishing. After graduating high school, he attended the University of New Hampshire for two years and then decided to pursue a career as an auto mechanic. Two years later, he then decided to return to the University to complete his degree. It wasn’t until after having graduated from college with a B.S in Biochemistry and having worked for several years as a Quality Assurance Lab Technician for Anheuser Busch, Inc. that Fr. Kenneth seriously began to discern a vocation to religious life and the priesthood. He came to know of the Fathers of Mercy by watching a program on EWTN, which aired several mission talks given by Fr. Bill Casey, CPM, who was the superior general at the time.
