FR. Bullock
  Father Scott Bullock - Pastor

I am originally from Michigan where my parents Jim and Helen still live. I have one older brother, Bob, who with his wife and seven children also live in Michigan. I have an older sister Christine, the middle child, who is married and lives in North Carolina. In a time long, long ago, I attended an engineering school in Michigan and worked for General Motors. I came to Iowa in 1986 to attend the great Iowa State University. While there, I decided to enter seminary and was convinced that the Lord was calling me to be a priest in what for me was the far-off land of Iowa. After five years of seminary, including four remarkable years in Rome, Italy, I was ordained in 1991, three years after your former pastor, Fr. Kopacek. After three years in Cedar Rapids, I came to St. Edward for the first time in 1994, serving with Msgr. Bleich and Fr. May. I left St. Edward on Christmas Day in 1995 to complete some study in Church Law at the Catholic University in Washington DC. I returned to Iowa, served 13 years in three parishes south of Dubuque and then the last three years as Pastor of the Church of the Nativity in Dubuque. I was also Director of Seminarians and on the Faculty of St. Pius X Seminary at Loras College for 17 years, where Fr. Kopacek has gone to serve. I am also Judicial Vicar of the Archdiocese, which involves some ongoing work with Church (canon) law. In my spare time, I love reading fine literature, riding my bicycle, and enjoying good food with friends. I also like to watch and study classic movies. Three of my favorite film makers are the three great silent film directors: Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd, and Buster Keaton. But . . . my all-time favorite is the Japanese director Yasijuro Ozu. If you watch his Tokyo Story, you’ll never be the same! Some of my favorite authors are Jane Austen, Graham Greene, and Charles Dickens (I could read him always and him alone!) It’s great to be back!
