Fr. John Meyers, Rector

Fr. John F. Meyers grew up in lower Bucks County. He attended Our Lady of Grace Parochial School and Bishop Egan High School before entering St. Charles Seminary in September of 1972. After his ordination to the Diaconate, Fr. John took a leave of absence during which time he lived in Juncos, Puerto Rico. While living Puerto Rico, Father made a Cursillo Weekend, and since then, he has remained active in that movement on both local and national levels. He later taught in St. James High School in Chester, PA and St. Pius X High School in Pottstown, PA. In 1982, Father John entered the seminary again, and he was ordained to the priesthood in May of 1983.

From 1983 – 2000, Fr. John served as Parochial Vicar of the following parishes:

In June of 2000, Father was appointed Coordinator of Hispanic Ministry in Bucks County where he supported works in Bristol, Bensalem and Hatboro. He initiated Spanish Mass in Our Lady of the Sacred Heart, Hilltown; St. Isadore, Quakertown; and Immaculate Conception Parish, Levittown. In 2005, Father was appointed Pastor of Our Lady of Fatima Parish in Bensalem where he served for six years when he was later appointed Pastor of St. Martin of Tours Parish, Philadelphia in 2011. In January of 2017, Father resigned from the parish for health reasons and served as Parochial Vicar until his appointment as Rector Pro Tem of Malvern Retreat House in June.
