He attended St. Boniface grade school and Pope John XXIII Central Catholic High School. Eischeid will spend the summer at Sacred Heart Parish-Norfolk and return to Kenrick Glennon Seminary in St. Louis in the fall. As a transitional deacon, Eischeid will proclaim the Gospel and preach at Masses, distribute Holy Communion, preside at baptisms and wake services, and perform other parish duties. Courtesy photo
