Meet our new pastor, Father Adam Park
Father Adam Park, a native Washingtonian, grew up in Bethesda, MD and graduated from Walt Whitman High School. During his senior year in high school, he discerned that God was calling him to the priesthood, and so, turning down a scholarship to the University of Notre Dame, decided to join the seminary. The Archdiocese of Washington sent Fr. Park to St. Pius X Seminary in Scranton, PA, where he graduated with a BA in philosophy from the University of Scranton. For his major seminary studies, Fr. Park was sent to the Pontifical North American College in Rome, Italy and received an S.T.L. in Fundamental Theology from the Pontifical Gregorian University. Fr. Park was ordained to the priesthood in 2005. He served as a parochial vicar at St. Patrick Catholic Church in Rockville, MD from 2006-2008. He was then assigned to be the priest secretary to His Eminence, Cardinal Donald Wuerl until 2012. Afterwards, he served as pastor at Epiphany Catholic Church in Georgetown. As of January 2015, he was given the additional responsibility of being the chaplain of the Newman Catholic Student Center at George Washington University. Having begun this new assignment as of July 2016, Fr. Park is excited to be the new pastor at Immaculate Conception Church and hopes to continue the rich tradition and vibrancy of the parish.
