Description: Born on April 11, 1937, in the free state of Ireland, Father Peter Oliver Quinn was one of several siblings born to Laurence Quinn and Molly Martin Quinn. Around the time he was three and a half years old, Father Quinn started attending public school in Ireland; he went on to complete college and seminary, deciding early in his life to become a Catholic priest, rather than a farmer in Ireland. In his family of origin, deep spirituality was felt and practiced, including nightly prayers. He was ordained when he was twenty-five years old in Ireland, and he came to Mississippi in September, 1962. Prior to his coming to Mississippi, Father Quinn had two uncles who were in the priesthood who came to Mississippi.
