Meet the members of our Pastoral Council
I grew up in Erie, Pennsylvania and moved to Virginia to attend college. I have lived in Richmond for the past 12 years and along with my wife, have been a member of Sacred Heart Church for the past several years. We have three children: Jane (5), Bernadette (3), and Nicholas (1). I grew up in a large Catholic family of which I am one of thirteen children. My parents, along with my Catholic education have instilled the strong values that I maintain today. Additionally, I am a member of the Knights of Columbus. Ever since my wife Christina and I began to attend Sacred Heart we felt like we were being welcomed by a family. The parishioners are kind and friendly, and its nice to walk in to church on Sunday morning and have everyone smile and say hello, then stop and have a conversation with other families after mass. I also admire the rich cultural diversity that our parish offers.
Through my professional work experience over the course of the past several years I have gained valuable knowledge managing budgets, negotiating contracts, and developing schedules for both the private and government sectors. As a member of the Parish Council I can utilize these skills to provide appropriate guidance and suggest alternative methods for consideration to future undertakings. Additionally, I have always worked well with others, I believe that success in reaching the goals and objectives of our Church depends on mutual respect of one another and the ability to work well with each other.
