Fr. Joseph Girzone was born in 1930 in Albany, N.Y. He is a writer, most known as his author of the Joshua series. (The Joshua Series is a biblical fiction series that tells the story of a modern day Joshua – a remarkable man of God. More than 6 million copies of the series have been sold.)
Fr. Girzone entered the Carmelite Order in 1948; he was ordained a Catholic priest seven years later. After many years of serving New York churches, he retired in 1981 for health reasons. After his retirement, he became a full-time writer and speaker.
It was on this day that Fr. Girzone came to St. Bonaventure University to address students about his life and his religion.
Fr. Girzone resides in Altamont, N.Y.
