Hello! It is great to be here at St Francis of Assisi Parish and I look forward to getting to know you all more and more as time goes on. I've was ordained June 11, 2011 for our diocese but I am not a native Hossier. I was born and raised and went to college in Michigan. I am the oldest of 5 siblings and graduated from Michigan Technological University with a BS in Civil Engineering. It was this path through Michigan's Upper Peninsula that brought me to Indiana as my job search after college led me to Indianapolis and to settle at St Maria Goretti Parish in Westfield.
During college I entered the Catholic Church through RCIA and quickly developed the habit of attending daily Mass once I move to Indiana. It was in the daily Sacrifice of the Mass that I heard God calling me to serve Him. At first I didn't know what the call meant but I kept praying and eventually I knew he was calling me to be His priest. I'm glad I listened to God's call and I'm glad he's brought me here to help everyone at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church to hear the call to holiness that God has for them and to do what I can do to help you all hear and answer that call both now and into the greatness of eternity!
I am a 4th Degree Member of the Knights of Columbus, enjoy hunting and fishing and I am a die-hard Detroit Tigers fan.
