Christ the King Seminary has hired Adam V. Plescia as a full-time assistant professor of Sacred Scripture.

Plescia was most recently an adjunct professor at St. Mary's Seminary and University, Ecumenical Institute of Theology, in Baltimore, where he taught a variety of courses over a three-year span. He was previously a teaching fellow at The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C.

Dr. Plescia earned a Ph.D. in Biblical Studies from The Catholic University of America, a Master of Arts degree in Advanced Languages and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theological and Historical Studies. He is also member of The Society of Biblical Literature and The Catholic Biblical Association.

"Dr. Plescia is another great addition to the talented and devoted faculty and staff we have assembled at the seminary," said the Rev. Joseph Gatto, president-rector at Christ the King. "We are looking forward to welcoming Dr. Plescia and his wife, Sara, to our seminary community.  I am confident our students will greatly benefit from his vast knowledge and teaching skills."

In his new role at Christ the King Seminary, Plescia will instruct at the graduate level on Sacred Scripture, with a particular focus on the Old Testament. He will assist students in relating biblical texts and theology to their own faith life as they prepare for ministry in the Diocese of Buffalo and beyond.
