Father Sean Davidson
Fr. Sean is a member of the Missionaries of the Most Holy Eucharist, a new public clerical association based in southeast France. It is a small Eucharistic Community founded canonically in 2007 by Bishop Dominique Rey (Diocese of Fréjus-Toulon) and Fr. Florian Racine for the promotion of Eucharistic Adoration in the Church.
Born in London, England in 1979, Fr. Sean spent much of his childhood and youth with his family in Ireland and it was there that he encountered the Lord at the age of 21. He decided to enter formation for the sacred priesthood in the summer of 2004 and his call was accompanied by a strong desire for Eucharistic Adoration, as well as the mission to make Jesus in the Eucharist known and loved. Thus he made the decision to go to France and assist with the project of Bishop Rey and Fr. Florian to establish a missionary community of adorer-priests dedicated to this end.
Having completed his priestly studies in the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome in 2009, Fr Sean was ordained a priest in Toulon, France, on June 26th 2011, the solemnity of Corpus Christi.
In addition to his missionary work around the world, Fr. Sean is now offering silent and preached Eucharistic Retreats in the Seminary of the Immaculate Conception in Huntington, Long Island.
The spirituality of his association is based especially upon the writings of St. Peter Julian Eymard, the Apostle of the Holy Eucharist, canonized by Pope John XXIII at the time of the Second Vatican Council. There are also several lay and religious associate members of this association, some of whom reside in the United States.
