2024 ALUMNUS LIFETIME SERVICE AWARD: REV. DANIEL CARSON

 

 PASTOR, ST. PETER’S CHURCH, CAPITOL HILL

 CLASS OF 2012

Rev. Daniel B. Carson, M.A., S.T.L., will receive TC’s 2024 Alumnus Lifetime Service Award, in recognition of a lifetime of outstanding priestly service as a Church leader, educator, and charismatic shepherd. He serves as the pastor of Saint Peter’s Catholic Church on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. He previously served as the vicar general and moderator of the curia for the Archdiocese of Washington.

Father Carson credits his parents’ example of faith, love, and sacrifice with fostering his vocation to the priesthood. He is the youngest of four children raised in Bowie, Md., where his family was part of Sacred Heart Parish.

Father Carson received a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Maryland and a master’s degree in accounting from Strayer University. Before discerning his vocation, he served as a computer specialist in the White House and for a research office in the U.S. Senate. Following his government placements, he worked as a management consultant on Wall Street.

After attending a discernment retreat and discovering a strong call to the priesthood, Father Carson entered Theological College in 2008 and was ordained a priest in 2012. He was elected the representative for the Class of 2012.  “Theological College prepared me very well for parish priesthood,” said Father Carson. “As on older seminarian, I felt immediately accepted and welcomed. The strong fraternity at Theological College fostered my success navigating through six years of studies, and the spirituality of the Society of Saint Sulpice was a great support and inspiration.  The faculty, staff, and mentors helped me take ownership of my formation to be ready for the realities of parish life.” 

After his ordination, Father Carson served as parochial vicar at Saint Pius and Holy Redeemer parishes, assistant to Bishop Barry Knestout, administrator at Saint Francis Xavier Parish, and as pastor at Saint John Vianney parish. He then served as vicar general and moderator of the curia for Cardinal Gregory.

Father Carson has been pastor of Saint Peter’s on Capitol Hill since 2022. He enjoys being able to provide spiritual support to members of Congress and their staff as they strive to live their faith. Father Carson also enjoys providing spiritual direction for parishioners, mentoring seminarians and new priests, and teaching classes at Saint Peter School, where he especially enjoys teaching kindergarten through third-grade students. “I see the working of the Holy Spirit in our youngest students because their minds are so open.”

Father Carson was instrumental in starting Saint Peter’s migrant relief outreach in 2022 and the parish’s Saint Vincent de Paul ministry in 2023. He serves on the Archdiocese of Washington Priest Council, the Archdiocese of Washington public policy group, and as a Catholic Extension Society parish partner.
