Father Michael Silloway is the administrator at Christ our King and Savior Church in Greensboro. Raised in Peachtree City, he was inspired by the Christ-like example of his grandfather, who was a permanent deacon serving in parishes and prisons in New York State. But he was also attracted to the adventure of flying and hoped to join the Air Force. After graduating from McIntosh High School, he entered the University of Georgia.
His dream of being a pilot was short-circuited by partial color blindness. Through the answered prayers of both of his grandparents, he opted to dive into a vocation to the priesthood instead. From the University of Georgia, he transferred to Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio, after being accepted as a priest candidate.
After graduation from Franciscan University, he was sent to Rome, Italy, to complete five years of study at the Pontifical North American College. He was ordained a priest for the Atlanta Archdiocese in 2010. Father Silloway holds a graduate degree in sacred theology from the John Paul II Institute in Rome for studies in marriage and the family.
He is often invited to preach, speak and lead retreats. He served as a parochial vicar at the Cathedral of Christ the King, Atlanta, and as chaplain at St. Pius X High School before his current assignment.
