Fr. John Paul Joyce grew up and lived most of his life on Long Island in New York. He is a member of the
Intercessors of the Lamb, a Catholic religious community founded by Mother Nadine
Brown. The community is comprised of priests, religious brothers and sisters, and lay families. The brothers and sisters are consecrated Hermits, whose charism is communal intercessory prayer (prayer for others), and whose spirituality is both charismatic and contemplative prayer.
Fr. John Paul entered the community in May 1998. He finished seminary at Kenrick Seminary in St. Louis and was ordained in June 2001 and celebrated his first Mass on Pentecost. He spent his first three years of priesthood as an associate pastor of St. Philip Neri in Omaha. Since then, he has been serving full-time in his religious community, where he is formation director of the men, a retreat director, spiritual director and Father Superior to the men.
