It is truly a great time to be a Brave!

CLASS OF 2020 GRADUATION MASS

Father Scott Murphy was born in the Catholic Holy Land in the small town of Loretto, Kentucky.  Following the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation at age 13, he began to wonder if he was being called to the priesthood. At 16 he moved to Cheshire, Connecticut to attend a high school seminary ran by the Legionaries of Christ. The following stages of seminary training in this religious congregation took place in various parts of the world including Dublin- Ireland, White Plains- New York, Madison- Wisconsin, and Rome- Italy. University studies began with a year of classical humanities and over the course of 10 years, he achieved a licentiate in philosophy, specializing in anthropology and ethics, and in Theology, specializing in spiritual theology. Both degrees were attained at the Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum in Rome.  A three-year pastoral assignment during seminary was dedicated to youth groups, retreats, and summer camps in the north-central part of the United States. Ordained a priest on Dec. 12, 2009, Father Scott returned to youth work, this time in the Ohio Valley Region. He later returned to Italy and served as chaplain to the English-speaking community of Florence in the Church of Santi Apostoli where he served for six years. After prayerful discernment, he asked to transfer back home from the Legionaries of Christ to the Archdiocese of Louisville.  He was assigned to St James Church in Elizabethtown, KY in February of 2019 as an associate pastor.
