Fr. Blake Britton was born and raised in the Diocese of Orlando, Florida, the oldest of four children. After studying opera at an arts school and the Orlando Opera Company, he applied for the seminary at the age of 18 where he earned both a Bachelor’s Degree in Philosophy as well as a Master’s Degree in Divinity. He is fluently bilingual in English and Spanish and well-studied in classical Latin and biblical Greek.
Fr. Blake is heavily influenced by the writings of the ancient Church Fathers. In addition to Patristics, his favorite writers include Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, Hans Urs von Balthasar, Erich Przywara, Henri de Lubac, D.C. Schindler and Ferdinand Ulrich.
Fr. Blake has a deep devotion to the Cause of Canonization of the Florida Martyrs and was featured in the EWTN documentary They Might Be Saints, detailing the lives of the Native Americans who first practiced the Catholic faith in our country. He works closely with the postulators and members of the Cause to educate the faithful on the lives of these men and women.
St. Mary Catholic Church & School in Rockledge, Florida, welcomed Fr. Blake in 2018 where he serves as parochial vicar.
