Fr. David Nichols was born in New Jersey and grew up near Saratoga, NY. He answered God’s call to the priesthood and began his formation as a priest of the Society when the seminary was located in Connecticut. Ordained in 1992, he has been assigned to priories of the SSPX all over the world, including England and Ireland.  His last assignment was in Florida, and he is now here at our retreat house for the second time in the course of his priestly ministry. He takes care of the sick calls in the local area, and also says Mass for our faithful in Carson City, NV.
