Almost 33 years ago, I entered Sacred Heart Seminary in Detroit but left shortly afterward. My journey after leaving Sacred Heart has been blessed with a 26-year career as a Middle School and High School Special Education Teacher. My two daughters provide the love and support that any parent would be proud to have. My younger attends Michigan State university; the elder daughter graduated from American university and is currently working for the 9/11 Museum in New York City. With the encouragement of my Pastor, Msgr. John Zenz, and Sacred Heart classmate, Fr. Gerard LeBoeuf, I find myself to be a seminarian once again after 30 years. I know how fortunate I am to be attending PSJS. The staff and faculty are committed to the success of every individual who walks away from all they know in order to answer God's call. I pray that one day I will be able to use my talents, knowledge, and experiences as teacher, husband, and parent to evangelize the Grace and Mercy of God’s Infinite Love.
