Hello Butler!


My name is Fr. Dan Waruszewski and I’m excited to be here.  I look forward to growing with you together towards Jesus Christ, and His wonderful plan for our lives.  I hope to get to know more about you in the coming weeks and here is a bit about me.

I grew up in West View, PA and first heard the call to the priesthood in 7th grade at a daily Mass.  I just knew I had to be on the other side of that altar someday.  Before priesthood I was an IT specialist, earning a BS in CIS from St. Vincent College.  I also spent a year doing youth ministry retreats across the country with NET ministries.  In seminary, I started out at St. Paul’s and Duquesne in Pittsburgh and finished out Theology at Catholic U in our nation’s capital, Washington DC.  

After ordination in June 2017, I spent the last 15 months in another Washington, Washington PA.  I gained a lot of experience and good friends at our fellow county seat to the south.  

Exploring Butler I’ve been impressed with the many restaurants in this very walkable downtown, the Butler-Freeport trail (I’m an avid cyclist) and of course the many beautiful Churches.  But I look forward most to getting to know and love each and every one of you.  I love being a priest, being a bridge between God and humanity and can’t wait to see what God has in store for us up here if we only surrender to Him.  

As our bishop would say, grateful that nothing is impossible with God I am,

Fr. Dan Waruszewski - proud to be a Parochial Vicar in Butler
