Pastor of our community since 2019; Graduated from the University of Saint Mary of the Lake in Mundelein, Illinois with a Masters of Divinity, and was ordained to the ministerial priesthood by Archbishop Alex Brunett on Saturday, 13 th June 1998.

Favorite pastimes include reading, going to the movies or the theater, trying out new restaurants—and revisiting restaurants I’ve enjoyed—doing iconography (“image writing”), getting exercise, travelling and watching sports.  Football and soccer are my favorites, but I also enjoy basketball, baseball, rugby, and curling (an Irish sport that gracefully combines elements of hockey, lacrosse and assault with a deadly weapon).
