Fr. Phillip F. Chavez is a priest of the Society of Our Lady of the Holy Trinity. Holding graduate degrees in Theology, Philosophy, and Marriage & Family Studies, Fr. Chavez culminated his studies with a doctorate in Moral Theology from Rome. Basing his work on sound theological and human principles, he calls men to mentor younger men, to honor their commitments to family & community, and to more actively embrace their Catholic faith.
Fr. Chavez has studied, spoken, and consulted extensively about male spirituality. He is working to establish a men’s institute (http://www.frphillipchavez.org/) wherein he addresses the key issues of men and their concerns in all states of life.

This is me again. On a personal note, I have attended Masses said by this priest. He is a fantastic homilist and to watch the reverence with which he cleans the sacred vessels is enough to make you weep. Peace. ~~~mary
