Thanks be to God for the St. Patrick Parish community! The Lord has been so good to me! I am blessed and excited to be the Director of Faith Formation at St. Patrick Parish. I have worked in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee for over 15 years. I served as a middle school teacher at St. Rita's in Racine for 6 years, 3 years as principal at St. Sebastian in Sturtevant and 2 years as principal here at St. Patrick Parish School. I take great pride with the fact that I continue to learn something new every single day. I am so glad to be working with all of our students and their families in our community and having the opportunity to get to know other parishioners as well. Our Faith Formation programs are so much more than religion classes. We are a community of believers who inspire one and another to live our lives the way Jesus expects us to live. We have dedicated and knowledgeable catechists who volunteer every week and are committed to helping parents teach their children about our awesome Lord. In addition to my love of the church, teaching and community, I also find myself busy and fulfilled guiding my own children, Allison and Rosie, who are juniors at Union Grove High School. My wife and I have been married for more than 23 years and together much longer than that. After growing up in Kenosha, we moved to Los Angeles where we lived for 7 years and lived in San Antonio for 6 years before having our children and moving back home. My family celebrates Mass every week at our home parish, St. John the Baptist, in Paris, WI. We are extremely blessed!! Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, concerns, suggestions, etc. Thank you for your support & God Bless YOU!
