Tom has been active in parish ministry and in the diocesan Catholic Lawyers Guild, and he earned an M.Div. from St. Bernard’s School of Theology and Ministry. Tom was married previously, and his son, Luke, is a sophomore at Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio.
“My vocation grew out of my work in ministry. As I was discerning my path after marriage, I realized more and more how much joy and peace I found working in ministry, especially in my parish. Through the great support of our diocesan discernment program, I began to hear the Lord’s call to the priesthood. I am grateful to the Lord for this new path and to be able to follow the many priests from our diocese who received their formation at PSJS.”
