Let me just start by saying that I might be an unfamiliar name to many readers of The Colorado Catholic Herald, something that I hope to rectify! Following my presbyteral ordination, I spent two incredible years at Holy Apostles Parish in Colorado Springs. At the conclusion of those, Bishop Michael Sheridan asked that I pursue an advanced degree in biblical theology at the Gregorian University in Rome. So, while Colorado never left my heart, I left Colorado. Now, after two years of study, I am back in the diocese!
