9 Priests You Need to Follow on Twitter

Does your twitter feed need some laughter and holiness? These nine priests have you covered. Check out their hilarious (and holy!) accounts here:


1. Father Harrison Ayre

A priest for the Diocese of Victoria, Canada, Father Harrison’s likes include theology, his parishioners, hockey (he is Canadian!), and vicious take downs of those who put down the chastity and celibacy of priests. He’s also a fan of jazz music. He and his brother priests on Twitter also often get into extremely entertaining theology discussions.


2. Father Matthew Schneider, LC

A priest with the Legionaries of Christ and Regnum Christi in the DC area, Father Matthew Schneider is one of the most popular voices on Catholic Twitter. He has 46.5k followers! He is a voracious freelance writer with pieces appearing all over the place and regularly interacts with other Twitter users.


3. Father Anthony Sciarappa

According to his Twitter bio, Father Anthony is “Pittsburgh’s okays priest”. But anyone who’s interacted with him will tell you differently. With a penchant for snark, shenanigans, and WWE wrestling, Father Anthony will leave you on the floor howling with laughter. His homily tweets are not to be missed and his theological insights will help you deepen your own faith.


4. Father Michael Liliedahl

Father Michael is a priest in the Diocese of San Francisco who enjoys “Christ, humor, and good beer”. He posts his parish’s sign each week and they are often hilarious and sometimes even insightful! I narrowly lost to him in a Catholic Hipster poll a while back. . .


5. Father Alek Schrenk

Another yinzer (that’s “Pittsburgh resident” in the vernacular Pittsburghese), Father Alek has been an ordained priest for just under a year and is currently in Rome finishing his studies in Patristics.

He melds the serious and the silly well on Twitter and has a great time interacting with his brother priests and others. He’s also so cool that he has a second Twitter account from which he tweets exclusively in Latin!


6. Father Goyo Hidalgo

A Catholic priest in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and originally from Spain, Father Goyo’s twitter account is a phenomenal blend of faith and fun. You’ll want to check out his pinned tweet for his wonderful conversion story!


7. Father Dan Folwaczny

His Twitter bio tells you pretty much all you need to know about him: “Priest of Archdiocese of Chicago. Rocket scientist. Associate pastor of St. Norbert/OLB. Mac and cheese enthusiast. Pro-doggos. Recently addicted to hot sauce.”

He asks the important questions like: What are the rules of blessings? He’s also very good with jokes, Polish pride, and having fun with his brother priests and followers.

8. Father Leo Patalinghug

Father Leo’s biography says it all:

“Raised and currently based in the Baltimore, MD area, but born in the Philippines, Father Leo is a priest member of a community of consecrated life, Voluntas Dei. He is the Founder, Host, and Director of Plating Grace, an international apostolate to help strengthen families and relationship through God’s gift of a family meal. Father Leo is a best-selling author, and the host of Savoring Our Faith on EWTN, which was developed following his dynamic win on the cooking competition, ‘Throw Down! with Bobby Flay.’ He has also established a non-profit organization, The Table Foundation, with the mission to elevate culture and family life, one meal at a time.”


9. Bishop Umbers


Auxiliary Bishop for the Diocese of Sydney, Australia and unofficial Bishop of Catholic Twitter, Bishop Umbers is a true gem. A master of jokes and memes, faith and fun, his Twitter profile picture probably best describes him (it’s of Pope St. John Paul II holding a koala). To be a part of Catholic Twitter, you are obliged to follow this man.
