Welcome Father Alan Hunter

I was born October 30, 1950 and I grew up in Jacksonville, IL. I attended the Diocesan Seminary in Springfield and graduated from St. Mary College in St. Mary Kentucky. I attended Kenrick Seminary in St. Louis where I was ordained a priest on May 28, 1977 at the Cathedral in Springfield. I am very much looking forward to becoming your pastor.
