Director of the Catholic Student Center and Pastor of Corpus Christi Catholic Church
On July 1, 2015, I became the Pastor of Corpus Christi Catholic Church while continuing my duties at the Catholic Student Center. Before coming to the Catholic Center in July of 2013, I served as the Pastor of St. Scholastica Church in Lecanto from 2006 -2013, and before that as Associate Pastor at St. Raphael's in St. Pete after priestly ordiantion in May 2000 until 2004, and then at St. Stephen's in Valrico for two very short years before being asked to become the Pastor of St. Scholastica in Lecanto. While at St. Scholastica I also served as School Pastor of Pope John Paul II Catholic School. Since being involved in Campus Ministry, I have to say that it's a very exciting time to minister to and with college students because of the numerous opportunities that are available. With the New Evangelization that Pope Francis is encouraging us to undertake, following in the footsteps of Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI, this is an awesome time in the Church to reach out to people everywhere to invite them into our gatherings and communities as well as to continue to allow the Holy Spirit to form us as disciples after the Heart of Jesus. I'm so glad that you are perusing our website, and hope that you will join us at the Catholic Center soon!
