I am the Pastor of the sister parishes, St. Francis of Assisi and Church of the Incarnation.

About me:

I grew up in Cincinnati, OH where my parents and most of my family lives. My older brother lives in Nashville, TN and my younger brother lives in Bright, IN with their families. I graduated from La Salle High School in 1998 and then completed my B.A in History in 2002, and then went on to Secondary Education in Grad School at University of Cincinnati. In 2007 I entered Mt. St. Mary’s Seminary and was ordained in 2014. My first assignment was as the Parochial Vicar at Incarnation Parish beginning in 2014. I then was named Pastor of St. Francis of Assisi Parish in 2018. I now have been named pastor of the Family of NE-4 as the parishes of Incarnation and St. Francis of Assisi.

Favorite Bible Quote:

Psalm 51: 18-19 “For you do not desire sacrifice or I would give it; a burnt offering you would not accept. My sacrifice, O God, is a contrite spirit; a contrite humbled heart, O God, you will not scorn.”
