Fr. Mike Kwiatkowski was ordained in 1978 in Toledo, Ohio for the Comboni Missionaries after completing theological studies in Uganda. He was then incardinated in the Diocese of Spokane Vocations in 1988. Fr. Mike says that in his vocational journey he resonated with Jeremiah 1:4: “Before you were born I called you.” He says the desire to be a priest was active from his earliest grade school years. Fr. Kwiatkowski adds that serving as a priest gives him joy everyday. Fr. Mike is currently the pastor of St Joseph Parish in Otis Orchards, WA.
