Father Brian J. Ingram, Associate PastorFather Brian J. Ingram
Pastor

Father Brian J. Ingram is a priest of nineteen years, ordained by Bishop John R. McGann on May 26, 1990.   He is the eldest of six children—three boys and three girls—born to Raymond and Mary Jane Ingram of Huntington, N.Y. Father Brian began his life in Bayside, Queens, but his parents moved their expanding family to Huntington when Brian was four. His parents still live in the same house, and Fr. Brian is delighted that none of his assignments since ordination have put him more than 30 to 40 minutes from home.
        He is the proud uncle to twelve nieces and nephews (so far!), and is godfather to three of them. One of his real pleasures in recent years is being able to spend time with his siblings, their spouses and their children, most of whom are within an hour or two of Sayville. He enjoys literature and the arts, traveling, a bit of creative writing, dining out with friends, and he’s a big movie buff.
        Fr. Brian is one of the last priests in our diocese to have moved through the formative “system” that was so typical for decades, but which no longer exists in the form it once had. He attended St. Pius X Preparatory Seminary in Uniondale as a high school student, went on to Cathedral College in Douglaston (where he earned a B.A. in English), and then directly to the major seminary in Huntington. For a time, he was the youngest of several hundred priests working on Long Island.
        Fr. Brian’s priestly ministry has been a deeply satisfying one, filled with marvelous and often challenging opportunities to share in the faith lives of people from Seaford to Bellmore to Garden City, and now to the beautiful community of Sayville—his first assignment in Suffolk County. He is deeply appreciative of the encouragement and kindness he has found here at St. Lawrence, and looks forward to using whatever skills and energies he has to help build up this very special parish family. Belonging to Christ is not a guarantee that our lives will be free from stress or disappointment or loss, Fr. Brian concedes, but with the Spirit of Jesus alive in us, and with so much talent and generosity among the people of the parish, nothing is ever impossible.
