Father Brisson was a law student at Notre Dame in 1976 when he encountered, at an Opus Dei center just off campus, a group of young men serious about studies, sports, extra-curricular activities and especially understanding and sharing their faith. Eventually he became a numerary and traveled to Rome for philosophical and theological students at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross.
After the completion of his studies, he was called to the priesthood in 1985 by Blessed Alvaro del Portillo and ordained in Spain by Archbishop Miguel Roca Cabanellas of Valencia.
He has served as a priest in Madrid, Ciudad Real (Spain), Milwaukee, South Bend, San Francisco, New Rochelle and, since 1998, in Manhattan, where, in addition to offering retreats and spiritual direction to many in the apostolates of Opus Dei, he has also regularly celebrated Masses in various Manhattan parishes and has offered several hours of confessions each week for nearly 20 years at Holy Innocents Parish.
Father Bisson joined Saint Agnes as our Parochial Vicar on July 1, 2016.
