Diocese of Austin

I am a volunteer for several ministries within my home parish of St. Louis and the Diocese of Austin.

Theology on Tap

Theology on TapI am a leading member of a unique formation ministry where we host guest speakers in a local pub to present theological topics related to current events and young adult issues. I record, edit and post the Austin Theology on Tap podcast.

Written On Our Hearts

I was a leading member of the planning committee of one of the first Catholic Young Adult conferences in the United States. I assisted with program development, sponsorship, marcom and event coordination.


CapitalC.orgI have worked with the Diocese of Austin to help coordinate Young Adult ministries, leadership and activities across all parishes. I assisted with marcom, event planning and identifying stakeholders to help drive and sustain a new diocesan organization under the direction of Bishop Gregory Aymond.


I am on the diocesan board of advisers that helps form, guide and build fellowship groups for men across all 125 parishes in the diocese. I am also a third degree member of the Knights of Columbus.

Adult & Family Faith Formation

My wife and I are both members of the St. Louis Marriage and Family ministry. We help couples prepare to receive the sacrament of matrimony and young parents & their children receive the sacrament of baptism.

Catholic New Media

Following the spirit of Pope John Paul II’s call for a “new evangelization,” I am an active advocate for all forms of Catholic media, including the SQPN podcast network, social media, print publishing, cable TV, satellite and terrestrial radio and direct, outdoor and broadcast campaigns.
