My journey to the Diaconate began in March of 1998. After completing an intense Cursillo weekend at the Marianist Retreat House in Cape May, New Jersey I came home on fire for the Lord. It just so happened, and there are non-coincidences with God, that I saw an ad in the Catholic Star Herald for men interested in the Diaconate.
I answered the ad, was interviewed, and was accepted into formation for the Diaconate in June of 1998. It was an arduous and long process of formation, but as I was once told, no matter what the hurdles, if the Lord wants you, He will enable you to finish the course. Thanks to His grace and strength, I was able to preserve and I was ordained to serve in the Diocese of Camden on June 11th, 2005.
