A Bio From the New Parochial Vicar
Most importantly, I am very excited to be coming to St. Christopher and St. John the Baptist! Now for the less important facts: I grew up in Beavercreek, and my home parish is St. Luke the Evangelist. I attended Carroll High School, and the University of Dayton afterwards. While at UD I was in Air Force ROTC, and in 2005 both graduated and earned my commission as a 2nd Lt. My first assignment was at Wright-Patt, and while on active duty I earned a MBA from UD as well. I spent six and a half years in the Air Force, and then entered the seminary. I was ordained in 2018. All in in all that made the total time I spent behind a school desk twenty five years! I enjoy learning, but I pray that God never send back to school!
My mom and dad still live in Beavercreek, and it has been a real blessing to be so close to them at Incarnation for my first priestly assignment. As for my 5 brothers and one sister (all married) some are close, and some are very far away.
I look forward to meeting you all, and during this global pandemic and national upheaval I hope you have been able to keep up your sanity and your spiritual life!
