Hello! I am beginning my second year serving as chaplain and theology teacher here at Marist Catholic High School. This year I will be teaching Sacraments the first semester, then Church History the second semester. Both of these courses are exciting topics to explore within the tradition that concretely influcence our daily lives.
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 and adjunct teacher here, 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 Galino, SCTJM: www.piercedhearts.org
May the adventure continue!
Yours in Christ,
