Biography

Father John Roller was born in 1934, and he has been a priest for 54 years. From 1989 to 2004 he was a pastor  at St. Thomas Becket Parish. Prior to that he was an associate pastor in six parishes. In 2006 Father came to live and help here and St. Emily’s.

Father Roller was raised in Oak Park and was educated in St. Catherine of Siena school, Quigley Preparatory Seminary and St. Mary of the Lake seminary in Mundelein. After ordination he attended Loyola University for two years to hone counseling skills.

Father Roller loves people, music and prestidigitation (magic), and he hates Lima beans; he insists they should be called by their proper name: Bingo Markers.
