I am a life long Episcopalian. I was born and raised in Louisville, KY.  I knew at the age of 9 that I was called to be a priest, a call that I fought for most of my life.  Then in 2002, I entered the ordination process in the Diocese of Kentucky.  I am a graduate of Virginia Theological seminary.  I am also a trained Spiritual Director.

I have been a priest for over 10 years.  I came to Emmanuel in March of 2016.  I love this church and its people.  I learned some time ago that nothing is perfect.  We all (including me) make mistakes, miss the mark, and fall short.  Nevertheless I strive to live in God’s grace and give it to others.  As Anne Lamott once wrote: “I do not understand the mystery of grace- only that it meets us where we are and does not leave us where it found us.”  So, no matter where you are on your spiritual journey you are welcome here at Emmanuel Church, La Grange IL.

I am always available to answer any questions about the Episcopal Church or more specifically Emmanuel Church.  You can contact me at the church office.
