Monsignor Caron to Join SJS Faculty

I am delighted to announce that Bishop Deeley has graciously agreed to release Monsignor Marc B. Caron, pastor of Prince of Peace Parish in Lewiston, Maine for service on the Faculty of Saint John’s Seminary effective July 1, 2016.

Monsignor Caron is an extraordinarily gifted priest.  His work has prepared him to form priests for the 21st century and I look forward to welcoming him to the faculty.

Born in Lewiston, Monsignor Caron attended St. Dominic’s Regional High School before majoring in French and philosophy at Bowdoin College in Brunswick, where he graduated summa cum laude. His Seminary formation was at the Theological College of The Catholic University of America, where he earned an S.T.B.  He also holds an S.T.L. in Liturgy from C.U.A. He was ordained to the priesthood in 1989.

Monsignor Caron has served as parochial vicar of St. Louis Parish in Fort Kent and St. Joseph Parish in Biddeford, Maine; chaplain at the University of Maine and the University of New England; chancellor of the Diocese of Portland and director of the department of ministerial services. In 2008, he was named administrator of the five Catholic parishes in Lewiston, and was appointed the founding pastor of Prince of Peace Parish in Lewiston in the following year.

Monsignor Caron was named a Chaplain of His Holiness in December 2000.
