Fr. Brian Dulli
I graduated from Mundelein Seminary in Illinois and was ordained a priest for the Diocese of Madison in 2008. I have worked in three different assignments as a parish priest and summer camp chaplain. St. Peter's is my first assignment as a pastor.
I was born in the state of Vermont. My family has also lived in the state of Maine, but we have lived in the city of Madison since 1994. I grew up Catholic along with my three brothers and sisters. Though we always went to Church on Sunday, I was amazed to encounter God in a personal way for the first time as a freshman at the UW-Madison. I encountered Christ in the scriptures and began to live my life for him. I became active in the campus ministry of St. Paul's Catholic Center.
My call to the priesthood came about a year after my conversion to Christ, but I spent a couple of years trying to seek an alternative to the priesthood. At the end of my time at Madison, I accepted that Christ was calling me to explore the priesthood. From the moment that I accepted this call, a new sense of purpose and peace entered into my life. I believe my experiences make me more aware of the great need to preach the Gospel to today's Catholics.
