Fr. Ouellette served in the U.S. Navy, 1992-1998, where he served as an Electronics Technician, spending four and a half years of that time overseas in Asia. After one year of college upon his discharge, he was accepted by his archdiocese as a seminarian and studied for three years at Conception Seminary College, Conception, Missouri and finished his formation at the Pontifical North American College in Rome.
Since his ordination, he has served as an associate pastor, a high school chaplain at Bishop Ward High School (2006-09), and has been pastor for five different parishes. He was assigned as the Ecclesial Assistant to the Charismatic Renewal for his archdiocese in 2009.
“I really enjoyed my previous assignment as Chaplain at Bishop Ward, and I look forward to returning and being an official part of the school's mission once again,” said Fr. Ouellette about returning to the school.
His current assignment is as Pastor of All Saints Parish, Kansas City, Kansas, an ethnically diverse inner-city parish, which is the consolidation of six different parishes.
