Fr. Michael French, CPM
Fr. Michael French, CPM, a perpetually professed member of the Fathers of Mercy (a religious institute of consecrated life headquartered in Auburn, KY). I was ordained a priest in June 2022 after attending Mount St. Mary’s Seminary in Cincinnati. I was born and raised in Columbus, OH, the son of Howard and Judy French, and I am the firstborn with two younger sisters. A life-long Catholic and public-schooled, I graduated from Ohio State University in 2008 and had a career for seven years in Florida, working in the area of my Aerospace Engineering degree. Discerning a call to the priesthood and subsequently religious life ever since the end of high school, while living in Florida I received graces of conversion and conviction to finally follow God’s call. I entered the Fathers of Mercy in 2015 and am thankful for the blessings of God’s mercy in all my life, and it is a joy to serve the Church in the priesthood of Jesus Christ.
