Former Associate Pastor at St. Anne’s in Barrington and current Pastor of St. Paul of the Cross Parish, Father Britto Berchmans envisions the ideal Catholic parish to be a community of disciples who seek to live the example of Jesus as defined in our Catholic tradition.

He holds Master’s degrees in Physics, Journalism and Systematic Theology, and a Doctorate in Mass Communications. His ministerial priorities include nurturing Catholic education and the religious formation of children and young people, making faith accessible to today’s Catholic and strengthening Christian marriage and family life. Born in India to deeply-committed Catholic parents, Fr Britto is one of seven children. He joined the Salesians of Don Bosco as a young man and was ordained a priest in 1981. We look forward to having Father Britto lead us in our journey of deepening our relationship with Jesus!
