Mary and I were married in 1994. We consecrated our marriage to be formed under the care of Our Lady of Guadalupe and dedicated ourselves to help build up and encourage families in the Church. For over twenty years we have served the Church through a non-profit corporation called Holy Family Apostolate - presenting missions, concerts, and Holy Hour of Eucharistic adoration at parishes, military bases, classrooms, hospitals, and in homes.
We highlight the power of the sacraments and how God still calls, renews, and equips his people to change the world - especially by the way we love and live the faith we claim to hold. All stories, songs, testimonies, and reflections are kept 'under the veil' of the teaching magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church. CLICK HERE to review our Pastoral References page.
I'm 56 years old and still recall my father's piano playing when I went to bed at night. I savored his melodies as they drifted through the walls into my room. Sometimes think I get the copyright for his melodies that were planted in my heart. He was certainly 'praying' the keys; something I try to imitate on guitar.
For two and a half years I studied with the Western Province Dominicans at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, CA. For the last 22 years our family has served Catholic communities across the country and in Europe.
I really hope to write a book called: "The Tale of Two Parishes" with stories from what we have observed in our travels. It does not take long to sense if members or staff at a parish are building a kingdom - or the kingdom.
