Before entering PSJS, Chris was working in the local Worcester, Massachusetts area doing carpentry, general building and construction and mechanic work. He also owned and operated a small trucking company where he hauled asphalt during the warm seasons and plowed the highway in the winters. Chris learned the automotive trade in high school and went on to specialize in GM vehicles through a college program.
“I worked at a dealership for a few years before discovering that I wanted to learn more about my faith and catholic philosophy. I attended Thomas More College for two years, 1998-2000, Worcester State for one year, and finally finished my undergraduate at Franciscan University in 2007. I was accepted at St. John’s Seminary in Brighton, MA and I attended from 2008-2011. It came that I had to return to work, and I used that time to further discern my vocation. Praise God, I was able to return to the seminary, to Pope St. John XXIII this time, and I’m happy to be here and am very blessed. This is a great place with many diverse personalities and occupations, but the common way of following Christ every day is a great joy shared by all.”
