Deacon Daniel Reuwer was born in Silver Spring, Maryland, on April 23, 1992, to Mr. Kenneth Reuwer and Mrs. Michelle Reuwer. He is the oldest of six siblings, with four brothers and one sister (who is the youngest of the bunch). The son of an NCIS agent, he moved around a lot through his life. His dad’s job took him from Maryland and North Carolina to London, England, and Naples, Italy. It was in England and Italy that he did his grade school. Following his time overseas, he moved with his family back to the United States, where he went to high school in Huntingtown, MD, and Chesapeake, VA. Daniel went to Belmont Abbey College to double major in Theology and Government. Upon his graduation in 2014, he taught middle school religion and social studies and was the athletic director at St. William of York Catholic School in Stafford, VA. Here his work in a parochial environment stirred the call to the priesthood that he had long felt since childhood. After two years of teaching, he entered the seminary for the Diocese of Arlington. He studied at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary, where he earned a Masters in Philosophical Studies and a Masters in Divinity. He was ordained a deacon in April of 2021, and subsequently has been assigned to Holy Family Catholic Church for his diaconal assignment. He currently has one more year to go at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary, in which he hopes to finish up a Masters in Theology.
Deacon Daniel is an avid sports fan. His favorite teams are the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Baltimore Orioles, which he passionately believes are God’s favorite teams as well. Deacon Daniel also loves music and movies. Last but not least, he cherishes spending time with family and friends, and always enjoys getting to know new people.
