Faith is the first of our “分类帐 Way” core values and has root in all aspects of our student development. SMSA is unique by developing students spiritually, along with intellectually and physically. Protected and guided by our Patroness, Mary of the Immaculate Conception, SMSA seeks to follow her model of humility, 服从, 和慈善.

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!
