Father Bill Brisotti attended Mount St. Mary’s College in Maryland and the Immaculate Conception Seminary in Huntington, New York. Father Bill was ordained a Roman Catholic Priest in 1968 after spending three summers helping the poor and destitute of Peru and Chile at Maryknoll Society Missions. A member of Pax Christi, Father Bill has worked his entire life to promote the cause of universal pacifism and has consistently exhibited compassion and the courage of his convictions by putting himself in harm’s way to help others. Father Bill has been a member of the Atlantic Life Community for nearly 40 years. He is also a member of Voice of the Faithful and an advisory board member of Voice of the Ordained for the dioceses of New York, Brooklyn and Rockville Centre. As president of the Rockville Centre chapter, Father Bill has called on all of the ordained to always act in accordance with Jesus’ vision of a Servant Church.
