I was born in Butler, PA on October 31, 1970 with my twin brother, John, who is a State Trooper for Pennsylvania. After college, I entered the Benedictine Order (O.S.B.) to become a Roman Catholic monk. I professed my temporary vows for three years in July, 1995, and professed my perpetual (lifelong) vows in July, 1998. I was ordained to the priesthood in May, 1999. Since then, I've been assigned to our college mission in Latrobe, PA as the Director of the Saint Vincent College Bookstore, and as Campus Minister to the college students as well.
