I am a priest of the Archdiocese of St. Paul-Minneapolis. I was ordained in 1987, and first served as a pastor at St. Rose of Lima parish in Roseville, after which I was assigned to the faculty of The St. Paul Seminary. I accomplished my graduate studies in Sacred Scripture at the Pontifical Biblical Institute, Rome and the Ecole Biblique, Jerusalem.
I was assigned as pastor of the Churches of Holy Trinity and St. Augustine, South Saint Paul, in April of 2005. I write a monthly column for “The Catholic Servant” and post daily responses to biblical question on the Eternal Word Television Network web-site (EWTN.com). I also serve as a Military Chaplain in the Minnesota Air National Guard.
