Hello - My name is Fr. Bobby Krisch. I grew up at St. Jude Parish in South Bend. I am the third of four children born to John and Mary Krisch. I graduated from Marian High School in 2009 and I graduated from Manchester University in 2013 with a degree in accounting. I worked in accounting at Ford Meter Box in Wabash for four years before entering seminary in 2017.

I spent a summer here at St. Charles after my first year in seminary back in 2018. Part of me always hoped to come back here as a priest one day, so it is awesome to be back with you again! I was just ordained a priest a few weeks ago on June 3. In my time here at St. Charles, I will also be a chaplain at Bishop Dwenger High School. If you would like to know more, feel free to ask, or I’d love to get dinner with you sometime!

People have been asking me what I prefer to go by. My preference is “Fr. Bobby,” please. Know of my prayers for you, and please pray for me as well! I am looking forward to being here with all of you at St. Charles Borromeo!
