My Photo

For nine years up till July 2010, I was parish priest at St Simon Stock Catholic Church, South Ashford, Kent, England. From July 2010 until June 2011 I was Associate Pastor at St Peter's Cathedral, Marquette, Michigan USA and then Pastor at St Anthony Parish, Gwinn, MI until October 2013. I then transferred to the Archdiocese of Portland in Oregon to serve as Director of the Tribunal. And that's what I am currently doing. Since February 2015 I have also been serving as Pastor at St Stephen Parish, South East Portland. I miss "da UP" (Upper Peninsula of Michigan) but love being here in the Pacific North West.

Some good advice for parents

Parents often express concern about the appropriate manner in which to explain issues of life and death to their children. I would recommend watching this short video clip of St Josemaria Escriva de Balaguer, founder of Opus Dei, in one of his catecheses in South America, full of good sense and compassion ... and good humour.
