Seek information from the birds of the air.
The creeping things of earth will give you lessons,
And the fishes of the sea will tell you all.
There is not a single creature that does not know
That everything is of God’s making. 

God holds in power the soul of every living thing,
And the breath of every human body.

—Book of Job 12:7-10

Over the past 36 years, I have been engaged in various ministries throughout the Diocese of Saginaw, MI.  Some of the pastoral ministries I have been involved with are: priestly ministry (13 years), religious education (womb to tomb), sacramental preparation, marriage counseling, grief and divorce ministry, as well as spiritual direction.

My greatest love in all of this work has been to be a companion with folks on their journey of faith and to share those sacred experiences.  One way to journey with others is spiritual direction.  I am continuing this ministry of Spiritual Direction now in the Diocese of Grand Rapids.  I have become involved at the Dominican Center for Spirituality located in Grand Rapids, MI as a Spiritual Director.
