Hello! I am beginning my third year serving as chaplain here at Marist Catholic High School. This year I will be focusing on the chaplaincy aspect of serving here. This will include more time to meet with students and help enhance events around faith development. This year I will be on campus Wednesday through Friday. Mass will be offered on these days and confession times will be established.
Education: My education journey has provided a broad framework to continue the building process of life-long-learning. I have earned the following degrees: Associate of Science (Lane Community College), BA in Philosophy (Mount Angel Seminary), BA in Literature (Mount Angel Seminary), STB (Pontifical Gregorian University-Rome) and an STL (Pontifical Gregorian University-Rome). Topics that I have explored through continuing education in the context of formal higher education are: Cognitive Behavior Therapy (Centro de Psicoterapia Cognitiva- Canun, MX), French (L’Institute Francais- Centre de Saint Louis- Rome).
In addition to serving as chaplain at Marist, I serve as Pastor of St. Catherine of Siena Catholic Church in Veneta, State Chaplain for the Knights of Columbus and as a Missionary of Mercy—appointed and commissioned by Pope Francis in 2016. I have served in various ministries including a five-year term serving at Mt. Angel Seminary as a Formation director, Adjunct Professor and Assistant to the Head of Spiritual Formation. I deeply believe in the power of education to form our minds and hearts to become more deeply in love with Jesus Christ, who is the way, the truth and life. I have been blessed to be able to serve in a variety of settings; perhaps the greatest grace, after being called to the Priesthood of Jesus Christ, is that I am spiritually associated with the Family of Pierced Hearts, whose foundress is Mother Adela Galindo, SCTJM: www.piercedhearts.org
