Permanent Obesrver Mission of the Holy See to the UN
Rev. Roger J. Landry is assigned to the Permanent Observer Mission of the Holy See to the United Nations in New York. A priest of the Diocese of Fall River, Massachusetts, he has served as a pastor of two inner city parishes, as his diocesan newspaper editor, and as a chaplain at a Catholic High School. After graduating from Harvard with a biology degree, he attended seminary at the North American College in the Vatican, where, besides his graduate studies in moral theology, he was a guide to the Vatican excavations and the Churches of Rome, a skill he happily put to use during Acton Institute Conferences in Rome and pilgrimages to Rome of many friends of the Acton Institute. A lecturer at Acton University, he was an on-site commentator for EWTN’s coverage of the 2013 papal conclave that elected Pope Francis, writes for many Catholic publications, appears often on various Catholic radio programs, and is national chaplain for Catholic Voices USA.
