Johnpaul Cafiero

Former Police Officer | Priest

Friar Johnpaul Cafiero, OFM (Order of Friars Minor), is today a Franciscan Priest of the Sacred Heart Province of Chicago/St. Louis. Formerly, he was a police officer with the Jersey City Police Emergency Services Auxiliary Unit. Interestingly, he does not view that career shift as a radical one; both professions allow him to make a positive contribution.

“My favorite book is The Wizard of Oz. I view it as a spiritual odyssey about the journey through life.”
