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.

Marriage instruction

We have quite a number of couples preparing for marriage just now. Today, Greg and Aghi Clovis came to speak about Natural Family Planning, always an integral part of marriage prep at St Simon's. Here they are on the right discussing their powerpoint presentation with some of those present.

Greg and Aghi sought to present the natural method of deciding when and when not to have a baby and its distinct advantages, e.g. no ingestion of hormones into the female body, rendering a natural process inoperative; improved communication between husband and wife; etc.

Please keep in your prayers the following couples who are currently under preparation: Justyna and Massimo, Joanne and John, Kamila and Michał, Agnieska and Grzegorz.

Snaps for giving the instruction on Natural Family planning. Too many parishes don't do anything along these lines.
