Fr. Paul Robinson was appointed principal of OLCHA in 2019.
Fr. Robinson grew up in Louisville, Kentucky. After completing his high school education, he attended the University of Louisville, completing a Master's in Engineering Mathematics and Computer Science in 1998. He worked for two years in the field with Lexmark International in Lexington, Kentucky. Then, wishing to discern his vocation with the Society of St. Pius X, he entered St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary in Winona, Minnesota, in the fall of 2000. After six years of seminary formation, he was ordained to the priesthood on June 23, 2006.
Fr. Robinson's first priestly assignment was as a teacher at the Society of St. Pius X's largest school, St. Mary's Academy and College. During his three-year tenure there, he taught eighth and eleventh grade religion, as well as philosophy to seniors and first year students of the college. In 2009, he was transferred to Australia to be a professor at Holy Cross Seminary in Goulburn, New South Wales. He spent ten years in the Southern Hemisphere, teaching a variety of courses, but particularly dogmatic theology and Thomistic metaphysics. During this time, he also published a book on philosophical realism, entitled The Realist Guide to Religion and Science.
In August of 2019, Fr. Robinson's superiors asked him to engage in the work of Catholic education at Our Lady Help of Christians Academy in Colorado.
