Thanks for visiting our website! I have been a priest since 2006, and never tire of enjoying the ways in which priesthood allows me into the lives of others. Whether it is preaching and presiding on Sunday, pastoral counseling or sacramental preparation, or just simply having a conversation over coffee, I love to connect with people and learn about how God is alive and active in people’s lives. I believe thoroughly that God meets us right where we are at, and that faith is much more a journey nourished by questions and searching than a destination of ready-made answers. I am blessed to serve a community and congregation of welcoming and authentic people on such a journey.
When we have free time, my wife Kristy and I enjoy running, hiking, music, and walking our dogs through the Bay View neighborhood. So, if you happen to run into us, please say “hi” and know that you are always welcome, just as you are, at St. Luke’s!
