Reverend Father Joseph Sanderson -
Parochial Vicar at St. Francis Xavier Parish
We welcome our new Parochial Vicar, Fr. Joseph Sanderson, to Saint Francis Xavier Parish and School. Fr. Sanderson comes to us from Christ the King/St. Anthony Parish in Burlington where he served for two years following his ordination in 2017.
Born in Middlebury in 1990, Father Sanderson is the eldest of the three children of Jennifer and John Sanderson. He grew up in Orwell and attended Fair Haven Union High School, Our Lady of Providence Seminary, Providence College, and St. John’s Seminary in Boston. At the time of his ordination, Father Sanderson said. “It will be a great honor, privilege and joy for me to serve the people of this great State of Vermont, to labor for souls in this little corner of our Lord’s vineyard.”
