Hi all, It is an honor to be able to
serve the Diocese as its Director of Youth Ministry. I have
been engaged in youth ministry for over 13 years and have
served in numerous capacities during that time. My passion
for youth ministry stems from my abandoning of the faith in
middle school and my return to it in high school. Since
then, I have had a desire to lead others to Christ and to
share my faith at every opportunity. After being heavily
involved in my high school's faith formation and my
parish's youth ministry from 1998-2004, I served on NET
Ministries in Australia in 2005, was a volunteer for
Emmanuel Youth Outreach in Brisbane, Australia from
2005-2007 as part of their worship ministry and youth
ministry and, upon my arrival in the USA in 2007, served my
parish as its middle school and high school youth minister.
My wife and I have a great love for our Lord and His young
people, and we hope we can instill that same love in our two kids; Ellie & Liam.
I am here to serve you so please feel free to call
or email me at the Diocesan
Office.I look forward to serving you as you form faithful
life-long Catholics in our Diocese.

FAITH 2012 | 2013
REDISCOVERING OUR CHRISTIAN FAITH
With the Apostolic
Letter of 11 October 2011,
Pope Benedict XVI declared a Year of Faith. This
year will begin on 11 October 2012, on the 50th
anniversary of the opening of the
Second Vatican Council..., and will conclude on 24 November 2013, the
Solemnity of our Lord Jesus Christ, Universal King.
This year will be a propitious occasion for the
faithful to understand more profoundly that the
foundation of Christian faith is “the encounter
with an event, a person, which gives life a new
horizon and a decisive direction.” Founded on
the encounter with the Risen Christ, faith can be
rediscovered in its wholeness and all its splendor.
“In our days too faith is a gift to rediscover, to
cultivate and to bear witness to” because the Lord
“grants each one of us to live the beauty and joy
of being Christians.”
