Presenter Bio

Fr. Cannon grew up in Lancaster, the oldest of three brothers to his parents, Bruce and Barbara. In June, he became an uncle to a little girl named Maya. Fr. Cannon was ordained to the priesthood in 2019, after which, he was assigned to Holy Name of Jesus Church in Harrisburg and served there for three years as parochial vicar. He is currently in his second year as the parochial vicar of St. Theresa of the Infant Jesus and as a chaplain at Trinity High School.

Since childhood, Fr. Cannon has enjoyed being outside, especially hiking and camping. During the Covid lockdown, he spent a good amount of time going to different parks and nature areas, giving him a greater appreciation and respect for God’s creation.
