I graduated from Manchester Community College in 1985 earning an Associate of Science degree in Respiratory Therapy. The past 28 years I have worked for the Department of Veterans’ Affairs with the State of Connecticut as the department head of cardiopulmonary services. Being a member of the DVA afforded me the great privilege of serving those who have served in ways that I would not have envisioned. In addition, I have had many other blessed opportunities to serve the church in various ministries over the last 20 years; Lay Minister, Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist, and Catechist at all grade levels. Most recently, I have served as the director of a lay apostolate called ACTS within the state of CT. “These life experiences, coupled with the fact that many of my family members have been remarkable witnesses to the Catholic faith for me personally, have provided me with both blessings and challenges; blessings in terms of seeing the Catholic faith lived out, challenges in way of imitating the examples generously provided. The interior desire to continue a life of service, as nurtured by God’s grace, has led me to Pope St. John XXIII National Seminary to discern a life to priestly vocation.”
