I grew up north of Cincinnati, in Yellow Springs, Ohio. My parents still live on the farm where I was raised, and my two sisters have moved to Phoenix, AZ. I was ordained for the Archdiocese in 1987, and have served in parishes in Dayton, as well as taught Homiletics at the Athenaeum of Ohio/Mt. St. Mary's Seminary of the West.
I am available for all of the sacramental celebrations of the St. Veronica Parish community, and believe that one of my primary responsibilities is to foster unity within the parish. Additionally, our parish community works to be of service to the broader community through our acts of charity and concern for others, especially the poor among us.
St. Veronica is a parish, as we sing often, where "All Are Welcome." Come and experience this welcome for yourself.
I am happy to be at St. Veronica, a growing and vibrant parish. We strive to live, teach and proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ in all that we do.
