Father John D. Hanic


You are welcome! I hail from Monson, Massachusetts and have served as a priest in the Charlotte diocese for 35 years. For 16 years, I served as pastor of St. Stephen and St. John Baptiste de Salle in North Wilkesboro. After ministry, fishing is my other passion. I have two adult children, Johnathan and Jennifer; and am the grateful grandfather to Matthew, Cameron, and Millie.

Peace to you!

Welcome! I started playing for my home church in western NC at the age

of 12 on an old pump organ. I played there for almost 2 decades.

Making the move to Yadkin county, NC, I started attending St. Stephen

where I joined the ladies in the music ministry and eventually 

became the lone accompanist and Choir Director. 

Currently, I am blessed with my husband,

Phil, two adult sons and my granddaughters.

For those who love to sing (ages 10-adult) and who play instruments,

Please join us and connect with me:
