A Little Bit About Father Mike
My name is Reverend A. Michael Mayhan, “Father Mike”, from A Priest on Call Ministry.
After serving three years of active duty in the Army, I began my preparation for the priesthood in 1970
with the Congregation of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (Missionhurst CICM). I obtained a
Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy at Oblate College in Washington D.C. in 1973 and successfully completed
my graduate studies in Theology at the Washington Theological Union in Silver Spring, Maryland in 1976.
I also have a Masters in Educational Psychology.
After a year of internship as a Deacon, I was ordained to the Roman Catholic priesthood at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Brattleboro Vermont by the Bishop of the Diocese of Burlington in May of 1977.
This is certified by American National Catholic Church and by Missionhurst CICM (to confirm call:
(703) 528-3800). I served as a religious missionary priest for 14 years in Brazil and San Antonio.
I decided to leave the congregation to follow my heart, because I believed I was also called to the married state, and was granted laicization. My lovely wife and I have been married for over 27 years and have three grown daughters all living in San Antonio, Texas.
I pray that the peace of God will be with you as you explore this site.
Many who come here are searching for a Catholic Priest or a Christian Minister who is compassionate, understanding, non-judgmental, charitable, and most important of all willing to assist them in their need.
My years of experience in the Institutional Church of Rome has too often revealed occasions where good people in difficult situations were turned away by the Priest. I have seen these persons pushed away from the Church, from God, and from any sense of community, true peace, and happiness.
I am a Catholic Priest who understands what you may have experienced, and I am excited and eager to assist you with your pastoral and sacramental needs.
All Catholics who approach a Catholic priest for any sacrament, or help of any kind should be welcomed and listened to with kindness.

If you do not feel that you are being welcomed or treated kindly by your local priest or parish, I assure you that I will treat you with kindness and acceptance – nonjudgmental.
