Fr. Bradley T. Elliott, O.P. was raised in Dayton Ohio and studied Jazz percussion at the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music. After being raised as a Missouri Synod Lutheran, he entered the Catholic Church in 2002. After moving to California, Fr. Brad became an active, performing musician, with a reputation as a highly sought after drummer on the international scene. Working in Los Angeles, CA, he performed and recorded various styles of modern music from Rock to jazz and big band. During his time in Los Angeles, he performed and toured extensively with artists, such as Annie Stela and Brie Larson. After ten years as a professional drum set player and feeling a call to commit himself entirely to Jesus Christ, Fr.

After completing theological studies, he was ordained to the priesthood of Jesus Christ on June 22nd 2018 at St. Dominic’s Church in San Francisco, CA.
