Fr. James Boric was ordained a priest of Jesus Christ for the Archdiocese of Baltimore on June 21, 2014. He did all of his philosophical and theological studies at Mount St. Mary’s Seminary in Emmitsburg, MD. After ordination, Fr. James served as Associate Pastor at St. Margaret in Bel Air and most recently at St. John the Evangelist in Severna Park. Prior to entering the seminary, Fr. James covered the stock market. He wrote about major investment opportunities that are often missed by the mainstream media. In 2006, Fr. James had a major conversion experience that led him away from the riches of the marketplace and into the true riches of the Catholic Church. Today, Fr. James desires to be a saint and to help others become saints as well.
