Pajerski HeadshotFr. Daniel Pajerski, LC

A native of Raleigh, NC, Fr Daniel felt the call to become a priest early in high school but only decided to pursue the path while in college.  After graduating from NC State University with a degree in Chemical Engineering, in June of 1994 he entered the Legionaries of Christ seminary in Cheshire, CT.  His formation took him to Connecticut, New York, Rome, São Paulo, Brazil, Dallas, and then back to Rome where he was ordained a priest on November 25, 2004.  In the summer of 2005, he was assigned to work at Everest Collegiate High School and Academy in Clarkston, MI where he oversaw the faith formation programs for the students, faculty, and parents.  God blessed him with over thirteen years of service there striving to help students and families to get to know Jesus Christ and their Catholic faith better. In his free time, Fr Daniel keeps in shape mainly through running and is a 7-time marathoner, including two Boston marathons.
