Rev. Fr. George Patrick Carlin, born in New York, son of George A. Carlin and Mary Carr-Carlin. Fr. George has two brothers, Bill and Mike (deceased), and two sisters, Joan and Julia. He graduated from Canterbury Preparatory School in Connecticut and Amherst College in Massachusetts, where he majored in American Studies. He served in World War II and the Korean War as a Naval officer. 
After many years as a journalist on Major American dailies, he entered a late vocation theologate conducted by the Benedictines, and earned his Master-of-Divinity degree.  George traveled to the Philippines with the Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity and spent five years  at a Mission on a Bicol island. He received his diaconate, and was later ordained to the priesthood by his Eminence Jaime Cardinal Sin at the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception, the Manila Cathedral. 
As a SOLT priest, he served in the Philippines, has contributed articles to newspapers and periodicals in several countries, served at St. Anthony's Parish in Harper Texas, and served as the priest in residence for the lay families in Covington GA.
