Fr. George Reynolds, OP
Fr. George Reynolds, OP, was a Dominican Friar of the Province of St. Albert the Great. Raised in Oak Park and Maywood, Illinois, Reynolds
earned his B.A. in philosophy from Aquinas Institute of Theology and his M.A. in English from the University of Dallas. He served as a teacher at Fenwick High School in Oak Park Illinois and Bishop Lynch High School in Dallas; as pastor at St. Albert’s Parish in Minneapolis; and as a campus minister at Emory University, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond. With more than fi fty years of ministry under his belt, his pastoral experience is extensive. Reynolds currently ministers at the Aquinas Newman Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico. This is his first book.
Fr. Reynolds says one of the main influences on his writing was his father, who was a master storyteller. He kept Reynolds and his siblings enthralled with stories told before bed. Fr. Reynolds’ love of storytelling is evident in his preaching. Now for the first time we are able to share some of his non-homiletic efforts.
The illustrations in this volume were done by Fr. Robert Reynolds, Fr. George’s older brother, who before his death was a priest of the Diocese of Peoria, Illinois.
