Catholic education is unique in its mission to form the whole human person...
…mind, heart, body, and soul. By honing their God-given gifts, our students leave SMSA ready to make significant contributions to the common good and the renewal of society.
Growing up in Colgate as the oldest of four children, I was and continue to be blessed with a wonderful family, in which I came to know and love the Lord, both at Holy Mass and around our dining room table.
As a junior at Marquette University High School, following a decisive encounter with the Lord while on retreat, I began to discern not only the vocation to the priesthood, but also the Lord’s invitation to respond to His call in an immediate way.
After graduation, I entered Saint Francis de Sales Seminary right away, completing both college seminary and philosophy studies in Chicago and then my theological studies in Rome and in Mundelein, where I received a licentiate of sacred theology.
Having been ordained a priest for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee in 2021, my first year of ministry found me serving at four of our parishes in downtown Milwaukee. In 2022, I was reassigned to our parish of Holy 家庭 here in Fond du Lac.
It’s a gift to be a priest, just as it’s a privilege to minster to our students, 家庭, faculty and staff here at St. Mary’s Springs Academy.
Our Lady of the Ledge, 为我们祷告!
