I grew up in Cleveland, Parma actually, and am a huge fan of all Cleveland Sports. I was married on my birthday in 1997 and ordained a Deacon in 2016 (not on my birthday). Like most deacons in the diocese, I work in the private sector. I spent a lot of time in school and eventually earned a Ph.D. from Ohio State in Political Science and still love to read and study.
I have been married for 20 years and have 4 wonderful Children. Our oldest went off to college in 2017, which means I am really old. I spend most of my free time reading, but my indulgence is that I brew beer, very dark beer.
What I like most about Resurrection is the energy and vitality of the parish, from its music ministry to its fish fry to celebrating the holidays, our Parish is a dynamic community where I feel the Holy Spirit is alive and well. I enjoy teaching and working with those preparing for the reception of the sacraments, specifically, the sacrament of marriage.
