I invite you to take a look around and hope you
will enjoy reading some of the material I have posted here.
For those who are former readers of my column in the Catholic Times, you may enjoy going to the Rivers of Living Water tab or the Catholic Times tab.
I always welcome your comments.
Here is a little background information you may be interested to know:
I formerly served in a Catholic parish as a Pastoral Associate, Director of Religious Education and RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults). I am a commissioned Lay Ecclesial Minister and I am also a Catechist trainer for our diocese. I love to write and am grateful for the years I was able to write for (now out of print) The Catholic Times as a biweekly columnist.
Currently I write homilies and commentaries for faithCATHOLIC.
I am also happy to be a member (and past Moderator/Formation Director) of the Saint Catherine of Siena Lay Dominican Pro-Chapter which I helped found in 2005. I obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Religious Studies from Madonna University in Livonia, Michigan, in 2000 and a Master of Arts in Theology from Augustine Institute in 2016.
I have been married since 1982 and have three beautiful, adult children and two little grandchildren.
