Father Ryan was ordained at All Hallows Missionary College, Dublin, Ireland, on June 17, 1962 and in June of 2012 he celebrated his 50 Year Golden Jubilee. He is presently on retirement status from the Archdiocese of Savannah, Ga.
Father Ryan’s apostolate includes 22 years as an Air Force Chaplain; he retired in 1990 with the rank of Lt. Colonel. During that time he served in eleven different assignments, four of which were overseas where he was privileged to visit missionaries in Developing World countries, offering support and financial aid.
In the last twenty years, Fr. Tim has preached to over 1000 parishes on behalf of Developing Countries. When asked why he still keeps preaching for the poor, he states, ” If I don’t preach, many poor don’t eat, and with my good fortune comes a corresponding responsibility.”
