About Me

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.

    There used to be a decent trattoria on the Via della Pilotta near the fountain–good calzone. Not that you have much time to eat while studying at the Greg.🙂 God bless! My prayers daily for you.

    Geoffrey,
    I’ve enjoyed reading through your blog very much. The insiders view to recent history at the Vatican is most fascinating. I am thrilled to see that I am not in the vast minority that many would insinuate by keeping the faith – all of it, regardless of rationalism and current pop psychology. Thank you for the insights, and feel free to write me direct if you have comments or criticism on my blog. My email is at the end of every post.

    Thanks for the follow Geoffrey! I will keep you and your priestly formation in my prayers. Are you currently studying at the PNAC in Rome? I wonder if you know a dear friend of mine who is also studying there? His name is Jack Schrader. Either way, I am pleased to have been connected with you.
    Peace,
    Jessica
