Reverend Anthony J. Suso

Parish Administrator    

I was ordained a Roman Catholic priest by Bishop Richard Lennon on May 16, 2009 at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist in Cleveland. I have one younger brother, Michael, who is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame and currently is the admissions director of Notre Dame-Cathedral Latin High School in Chardon.  I am blessed with two loving parents, Julian and Stephanie, who live in Falmouth, Massachusetts where my father currently works as Town Manager.  I was baptized at Saint Mary's Parish in Wooster and spent most of my childhood living in Mentor and attending Saint Bede the Venerable Parish with my parents and brother.  I attended Catholic school all my life and graduated from Notre Dame-Catherdral Latin High School in the year 2000.  With the help of my parents and teachers, I believed God was calling me to be a priest and entered Borromeo College Seminary and John Carroll University in the fall of 2000.  After graduating from Borromeo and John Carroll in 2004 with a degree in philosophy, I began my graduate studies for the priesthood at Saint Mary Seminary in the Diocese of Cleveland.  After ordination to the priesthood, I began my first assignment as parochial vicar at Saint Francis de Sales Parish in Akron on June 9, 2009.  I will be concluding my second assignment as parochial vicar at Saint Joseph Parish in Strongsville on June 12, 2017.  My birthday is May 14th 1981 and I am 36 years old.  I am good friends and classmates with Father Estabrook and Father (Sean) Ralph who served as two of your parochial vicars several years ago.  I am grateful to Father O'Connor for his 24 years of faithful service as your pastor.

Please continue to keep me in your daily prayers and I look forward to meeting and working with all of you soon.  God's blessing be upon the Saint Columbkille Parish Family!
