Capuchin Friars

Father Akolla Etuge

Welcome Father Akolla Etuge to St. John’s! Father Akolla, a member of our province, originally from the Cameroon, joins the pastoral staff of St. John’s as parochial vicar. Before coming to St. John’s, Father Akolla served as parochial vicar at St. Agnes/Our Lady of Fatima in Cleveland, Ohio for the past two years. Father Akolla professed his first vows as a Capuchin in 2013, final vows in 2017, and was ordained to the priesthood in 2019. His parents are deceased; he has one sister and two brothers who live in the Cameroon. In addition to serving the pastoral needs of St. John’s, Father Akolla will assist me at Holy Redeemer Chinese Church and will be involved with the Young Adults at St. John’s and Holy Redeemer. Welcome Father Akolla!
