I always welcome your comments.
Here is a little background information you may be interested to know:
I am currently serving in a Catholic parish as a Pastoral Associate. I am a commissioned Lay Ecclesial Minister and direct our parish's Religious Education program and our Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). 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.
I am also happy to be a member (and past Moderator and 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.
