My Story

Ad Te, Domine

I’m currently the parochial vicar at Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Naperville, Illinois. In May 2020 I finished a Master of Arts degree in Catholic Studies from the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota. I’m the chaplain at Chesterton Academy of the Holy Family in Lisle, Illinois and teach in the Institute for Pastoral Leadership at Mundelein Seminary. Maybe someday I’ll finish what I started and end up with a Licentiate in Sacred Theology (STL), too. One thing at a time…

I’m trying my best to live a life of joyful discipleship and to root my life and ministry in the timeless tradition of the Church. Don’t believe what you hear on the news; the Church is very much alive, she is holy, and there is no greater adventure than to live a life centered on the person of Jesus and in service to his Gospel!
