Father Anthony Randazzo       

   Happy Pastor of Holy Trinity Church, Westfield, N.J 

Seminar Topic: "Eucharist Now and then"

The Table of the Lord has origins in a Jewish/Hellenistic world.  Christians today are called to be 'unity-builders' empowered by table actions and Jesus ethics.

    Father Randazzo is overjoyed to be the uncle of two nephews and two nieces.  He received theological degrees at the Catholic University of Louvain, Belgium and the Gregorian University, Rome.  

     After ordination in 1986 he began priestly ministry at Our Lady of Mercy, Jersey City. He came to Notre Dame in 1996 as the associate-pastor and became pastor in 2009. 
     In 2006 he co-authored a text based on his passion for yoga and Christ entitled, "Beatitudes, Christ, and the Practice of Yoga."  Besides a consistent yoga practice, he enjoys walking, cross-country skiing, domestic and international travel, and time with family and friends.
