About Fr. Garrett Nelson
Fr. Garrett Nelson first had inklings of a vocation to the priesthood at a very young age, but he sought his happiness elsewhere for most of his formative years. It wasn’t until he had a very profound experience of Christ’s Real Presence in the Blessed Sacrament that he decided to heed God’s call and turn his life over to Christ. After receiving his bachelors degree in philosophy from Franciscan University of Steubenville, Fr. Garrett went on to continue his priestly formation at the Pontifical North American College in Rome. During that time, he received a bachelors in Sacred Theology from the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas, as well as a Licentiate degree from the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and the Family. Fr Garrett now serves as the parochial vicar at St. Mary Parish in Malta, MT and is the primary Sacramental minister for the parishes of the Ft. Belknap Indian Reservation.
