I grew up in St. Gabriel the Archangel Parish in South St. Louis City. After graduating from St. Louis University High School in 2004, I entered Kenrick-Glennon Seminary as a College Seminarian. After 7 years of formation, including one year of service as a deacon at Ascension in Chesterfield, I was ordained a priest. I served my first two years as a priest at St. Joseph-Manchester, and then was asked by Archbishop Carlson to serve as your associate at St. Simon.
Many have seen the bulletin articles I write weekly. I keep them online as well at the website "
Mystery and Truth
I love being a priest, to offer the Holy Sacrifice and to give all the sacraments that our Lord left us to bring us to eternal life. It is a great joy of mine to be able to serve you here at this parish.
