I am a Roman Catholic Priest of the Diocese of Jefferson City. I currently serve the entire Catholic Community of Pettis County Missouri. This includes Sacred Heart Parish, St. Patrick’s Parish, St. John’s in Bahner, and the K-12 Sacred Heart School.
I completed my philosophical studies at Conception Seminary College. Then I participated in the program for priestly formation at the Pontifical North American College. My studies took place at the Pontifical Gregorian University. I completed a S.T.B. Summa Cum Laude in 2014. I then began an S.T.L. in Fundamental Theology, the completion of that degree has been put on hold for now as there were more pressing pastoral needs in my diocese.
Before I entered the seminary I worked as a journalist for different organizations and outlets. In the past this site was used as a “portfolio” where I linked to my published work so that you, my family and friends could find the articles which were being published all over the world. Now I use this to share updates on my experiences, thoughts and homilies.
