Over the years, I have been called to bring young people to Christ as teacher, counselor, parish youth minister, administrator, and most recently as campus minister at our high school in New York. In Province ministry, that call has led me to a variety of roles: formation director, vocation director, director of a local community, and even province leadership. The invitation - and the response - is one that never gets old or tired. It is an awesome challenge - one that has taken me down paths I would never have imagined or thought myself capable. Living the response has helped me to grow as Brother, in my understanding of how Christ relates to us and how we are invited to relate to each other.
