Fr. John Eckert is a priest of the Diocese of Charlotte, North Carolina. A cradle Catholic, he grew up surrounded by family, friends, and clergy who exemplified what it meant to truly live the Faith. This helped him discern his calling to the priesthood from a young age. He graduated from Saint Louis University in 2004 with a degree in Political Science and Communication. He entered seminary soon afterwards, studying at the Pontifical College Josephinum in Ohio. In 2010, he was ordained a priest for the Diocese of Charlotte. He has served as Parochial Vicar of Our Lady of Grace in Greensboro and as pastor of St. John the Baptist in Tryon. He now serves as pastor of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Salisbury, where he has been in residence since 2014.
