First Mass of Fr. Michael Flick, FSSP
Fr. Michael Flick, FSSP, ordained in Omaha, Nebraska, on Saturday May 31, 2014, offered one of his first Masses at the beautiful and historic Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Cincinnati, Ohio. Images below are from that Mass.
Father grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio. He is the second of four children born to Mr. and Mrs. Ferdinand and Donna Flick. His primary education was received at Our Lady of the Visitation Catholic school and secondary education at Cincinnati Elder High School.
Upon the completion of high school he enlisted in the United States Air Force. During his enlistment he served both stateside and overseas including tours of duty in the Middle East. Primary duties consisted in the maintenance of space, air and missile defense systems and the supervision of personnel. He was honorably discharged as a Staff Sergeant after eight years of service.
Before entering Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary, Fr. Flick attended various colleges pursuing studies in such subjects as electronics, history, philosophy and Theology.
He cites the liturgy and philosophy as two strong points of his formation. By learning and living the liturgical life, one can gain much. Through the liturgy God communicates certain truths about Himself, His love for man, and how man is to love God in return, that cannot be spoken in any other way.
In addition to administering the Sacraments, Fr. Flick hopes to be able to use both his life experience and what he has learned at the seminary to aid souls to find God who is the Final End of all.
