Spiritual Assistant

Fr Dennis Arambasick, OFM

 Fr Dennis

Fr Dennis was born in Warren, OH, in 1948, one of six children.  He attended Warren Harding High School and graduated in 1966.   After high school he joined the US Army and served our country in Vietnam.

In 1977 he felt called to join the Franciscans Friars of St Casimir Province in Kennebunk, Maine.   At the time this was considered a province in exile due to the communist occupation of their homeland, Lithuania.   After his initial formation and novitiate he attended Holy Apostles College and Seminary in Connecticut.   His solemn profession took place on August 15, 1984.   That same year he was ordained as a transitional deacon and ordained to the priesthood in May of 1985.

From 1990 until 1996 he served in a mission in the Republic of Central Africa.   In 1996 he was assigned to St. Anthony Monastery in Kennebunk, Maine, where he remained until 2002.   He transferred to the Immaculate Conception Province in 2002 and was involved in parish work in New Hampshire and Connecticut until he was transferred in 2016 to the Our Lady Comforter of the Afflicted Shrine in Youngstown OH.

Our Fraternity is blessed to  have Fr. Dennis as our Spiritual Assistant.
