Fr. Solomon Longo

Acting Rector

Fr. Solomon was happily assigned to Saints Peter and Paul Orthodox Cathedral June 1st, 2023.

Natives of North Carolina, he, Matushka Anna, and their 5 boys have also lived in Texas, Alaska, and Pennsylvania. His father grew up in New Jersey, converting to the Baptist church from Catholicism after a move to NC. In a twist of providential irony Fr. Solomon returns to Jersey as an Orthodox priest.

Fr. Solomon graduated from St. Tikhon's Orthodox Theological Seminary with a Master of Divinity degree.

Asked for more information about himself, he offers the following insights:

"Of all the priests you could ever meet, I am certainly one of them."

He hopes to see Saints Peter and Paul Cathedral grow in the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and he believes that following Christ offers us all nothing less than our most free, fulfilled, and complete life in a world set right.
