Father Robert Biron
Father Biron arrived at Our Lady of Fatima/Immaculate Conception in 2003 after serving as chaplain at the University of New Hampshire and pastor of St. Thomas More Parish in Durham, where he enjoyed working with the student population and faculty.
Ordained a priest in 1974, he has ministered as a pastor and associate pastor in various parishes throughout the Diocese spending 10 years in Keene, and nearly the same amount of time in Somersworth. Father Biron is originally from Berlin and studied at Our Lady of Angels Seminary in Albany, NY and received his Master of Divinty from St. Mary’s Seminary in Baltimore, MD.
In 1999, Bishop John McCormick appointed him as the Ecumenical Officer and Director of Inter-religious Relations for the Diocese. In that capacity, he worked as a member and chairperson of the N. H. Council of Churches as well as a member of the Jewish-Christian Dialogue Group for over 9 years. An important part of this ministry was outreach to the Islamic community of New Hampshire.
Our Lady of Fatima and Immaculate Conception has been home for Father Biron and over the years he has shared in the faith lives of its parishioners, the grief of death and the joy of weddings and baptisms and the ordinary days of life that sustain all who minister as a Catholic priest and as Pastor.
