David Mayovsky is a native of Western Washington and is a Roman Catholic Priest. He completed his seminary studies at St. Meinrad School of Theology in Southern Indiana and was ordained for the Archdiocese of Seattle in 1997. For the past 24 years he has pastored Catholic Communities across Western Washington. He is currently pastor of St. John Vianney Catholic Church on Vashon Island. A deeply “gift-committed” person, Father David has the following signature line on every email he sends:
“The most basic task of the Church leader is to discern the spiritual gifts of all those under his authority, and to encourage those gifts to be used to the full for the benefit of all. Only a person who can discern the gifts of others and can humbly rejoice at the flowering of those gifts is fit to lead the Church.” St. John Chrysostom, Six Books on the Priesthood.
