Fr. Bjorn Lundbergis the pastor of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Winchester, Virginia. Father Bjorn was raised in an Army family, and grew up in Germany, Texas, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Washington State. After graduating from Christendom College with a B.A. in History, and interning at Vatican Radio in Rome, Father was an Associate Producer for two years at the Eternal Word Television Network in Irondale, Alabama.
EWTN provided the opportunity to work on The Journey Home, The Abundant Life, Web of Faith and Rome’s Hidden Churches, among other television productions. In 2000, after being accepted to law school, he decided to apply for priestly studies for the Diocese of Arlington. Completing a Masters of Divinity and Masters of Arts at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Philadelphia, Father was ordained to the Priesthood by His Excellency, Bishop Paul S. Loverde on June 10th, 2006. His first two assignments were at the Cathedral of St. Thomas More in Arlington, and St. Mary of the Immaculate Conception in Fredericksburg. Father’s vocation is encouraged by the Gospel lesson of Confidence in God as taught by St. Claude de la Colombiere, St. Therese, and St. Josemaria. Our hope is assured by the special power of Our Lady to lead us closer to Christ through a renewal of our Baptismal promises, virtue-based discipleship, and deeper freedom which comes from surrender to Christ and trust in His Divine Mercy.
