Angel Seminary in Oregon, the Pontifical North American College, and The Pontifical University of St. Thomas in Rome, where he earned an STB focusing on Mystical Theology. An experienced retreat master, director, and speaker — having led missions, days of reflection, Theology on Taps, and conferences for the Fellowship of Catholic University Students, the Legion of Mary, and many Catholic parishes and organizations — Fr.
