Fr. Garcia Brenneville was ordained a priest of the Archdiocese of Port Au Prince, Haiti in 1985. In addition to his varied assignments, he served as a professor of Notre Dame D’Haiti Major Seminary for many years. In 2003, Fr. Breneville came to the United States with the mission of serving our Haitian communities starting at Christ the King parish as a half time parochial vicar. Later from 2005-2010, Fr. Breneville served as a part-time parochial vicar for the Haitian community at St. John the Evangelist. It was through his service and time here in Boston that Fr. Breneville felt called to stay and continue to serve at the Archdiocese, which lead to his incardination process.

As part of his process, in June of 2010, Fr. Breneville was transferred to St. Margaret D’Uville / St. Rita in Lowell where he served a predominatly American community. Two years ago, Fr. Breneville returned to Brockton as the parochial vicar within the Brockton Collaborative where he serves both the Haitian as well as the English speaking community there.
