Here’s what I’m up to these days

“I feel thin, sort of stretched, like butter scraped over too much bread.” ~ Bilbo Baggins in The Fellowship of the Ring.

  • Feeling like I’ve said “yes” to too many commitments over the past 2 years.
  • Looking for things I can say “no” to, in order to free up more time to finish my dissertation/Ph.D. and move on to full-time pastoral ministry!


  • I will be taking a course on “Aquinas on Knowing God” with Matthew Levering at Mundelein Seminary this Fall. My last required course!


  • Preparing to take over as point person for our “Intercessory Prayer Team” this summer.
  • Looking for better ways to coordinate pastoral care with our church management software, Breeze ChMS.
  • Waiting on a scheduled date for my ordination to the priesthood in 2019.
  • I also:
    • serve liturgically as a Deacon
    • volunteer with the youth group
    • am the point person for the church’s website and church management software
    • help lead worship occasionally
    • preach occasionally
