Father Eric Andriot
I am Fr. Eric Andriot and I’m extremely excited to be joining this great community. I am a native Northern Kentuckian growing up in Lakeside Park and attending Blessed Sacrament Parish and School. Upon graduating from Covington Catholic High School, I continued my studies at Northern Kentucky University and Thomas More College where I earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree.
My discernment to the priesthood began a little over ten years ago. At the time, I was working at Fifth Third Bank and weighing my options as to the direction my career would take me. While perusing job openings, the idea of entering seminary entered my mind. After a few weeks of internal debate, I decided to investigate the possibility. To make a long story short, an email turned into a phone call which turned into a meeting and the next thing I know I’ve begun the application process for entering the seminary and found myself moving to St. Vincent Seminary in the Fall of 2009. I was ordained to the priesthood for the Diocese of Covington on May 21, 2016.
Since my ordination three years ago, I have spent one year at St. Timothy’s in Union and two years at St. Henry’s in Elsmere. Throughout both assignments, I have learned a great deal and worked with wonderful people, I hope to do the same here at St. Anthony’s. I look forward to getting to know you all and developing some great friendships.
In my time, I have proudly been an Eagle, Colonel, Norse, Saint and a Crusader. I can’t wait to be a proud Cougar.
