Hello parishioners of the Northwest 5 family of parishes! It is with great joy that I will be able to serve our entire family as I continue to live at St. Mary’s in Greenville. I have enjoyed getting to know some parishioners in our different parishes over the last year at various gatherings around Greenville and Darke County and I hope I can meet many more of you very soon. I would love to schedule a time to meet a big group of parishioners to have a meal or a bourbon. If you see me out and about at Sure Shot or at a restaurant don’t hesitate to say hello and chat.
A little background about me. I grew up in the southern part of our Archdiocese, on the eastside of Cincinnati – Eastgate. All of my family still lives in that area: my parents Steve and Debbie, my 2 sisters and my brother. I graduated in 2000 from Glen Este High School. Then I graduated from Franciscan University of Steubenville and majored in computer information science. I worked in youth ministry for a couple of years before entering seminary and was ordained for the Archdiocese in May 2016. I have had various assignments with the Archdiocese in Coldwater, Fort Recovery, and Cincinnati. Some hobbies I enjoy are watching sports, especially the Cincinnati Reds, I plan to visit every MLB stadium, playing trivia, and I am a member of the Gem City Bourbon Society. Please know of my prayers for you and please pray for Fr. Brown and the other priests as we help you through this time of transition.
