Father Fraser is a member of a number of devotional guilds: The Society of Mary and the Society of King Charles the Martyr, to name a few.  He is a Council Member of the American Branch of the Guild of All Souls; and, he is a Priest Associate of the Holy House of Our Lady of Walsingham.  Father is keenly interested in all aspects of music, both choral and instrumental; and he has a strong appreciation for the textile arts.  His other interests include history, reading, baseball and hockey.

Our Rector is looking forward to building upon the legacy of his predecessors and sharing the Catholic Faith with a new generation.  He hopes that God will grant him to serve the people of St Michael’s for the rest of his active ministry!
