I have ministered in the Archdiocese of St. Louis, Missouri, the Diocese of Pueblo, Colorado, the Diocese of Cheyenne, Wyoming, and the Diocese of Charleston, South Carolina. I will soon add the Diocese of Des Moines, Iowa to that list as well. Nearly nine years of my ministry took place in the Diocese of Cheyenne. Thus, I have the most memories (and the most photographs) from that time period. I am grateful to my former colleague for providing those photographs through the years. They are great memories.
(A perfect photo-bomb by some guy that I did not see in the picture until now.)
My family has sacrificed a great deal through the years to allow me to do the ministry I do. I have been gone from home a lot through the last 25 years--first for formation and then for ministry. Click on the tab at the top of this page "Retreats and Parish Missions" to see all the places that I have been for preaching and teaching. Those locations represent time away from home. I am grateful for the sacrifices that Margaret and the kids have made which has made all of this possible.
As we prepare for another transition in ministry, please keep us in your prayers. May each of us be "clothed with power from on high" as the Easter season draws to a close and brings us to the great Feast of Pentecost!
