    Welcome to my website!


Here you will find some of the Catholic ministries that am involved in as a ministry leader or teacher.


I lead Pilgrimages to the Holy Land in the Spring of each year and to Rome in the Fall in even years.


I also teach a weekly Bible Study called The Gospels and I post prior lessons on this website.


Finally, I teach formation classes for future Deacons and am a Life Professed Lay Dominican.   Links of interest to these ministries are also available below.


THE GOSPELS - BIBLE STUDY CLASS

DIACONATE FORMATION CLASS

Currently I am moving pilgrims to September for my 12th Israel Pilgrimage.  I may have some additional spaces. If that is of interest, you can click on the Jerusalem Cross picture to the left and go directly to the site containing important information to assist you.

I am delighted that you are here visiting this website.

I was raised Catholic, but in my late 30s, I spent some time in the Assemblies of God Church.  It was there that Our Lord touched me with both - a love for the Bible and a prompting to return to the faith of the Apostles.

My passion has been to voraciously study the Scriptures and the Church tradition first penned by the Early Church Fathers who had the Apostles' preaching still ringing in their ears.

I am home once again, with great energy to spread the Truth, who is none other than a person - Jesus Christ  (Jn 14:6)

I teach the Catholic Faith within my Diocese of Fresno in various ministries.

Join me and partner with me in learning more about the Catholic faith.   Perhaps you can join me in walking in His footsteps in Israel, or see the fruit of the Apostolic mission of Sts Peter and Paul to Rome.

I participate monthly in Prison Ministry at Avenal State Prison.  

If you wish information regarding how to be a Detention Ministry Religious Volunteer, I would love to speak to you about it.

My Contact informaton can be found at the bottom of this page.

THANK YOU, for stopping by.

I teach a Bible Study in Visalia, CA at Saint Charles Catholic Church on Tuesday evenings.  We have been covering the Gospel of Luke timeline with a heavy emphasis on the Old Testament for nearly seven years.   You can click on the Gospels icon to the left to see a description of the Study and prior lessons.

I have the great privilege of teaching future Deacons and their wives during their diocesan formation period prior to ordination to Holy Orders.   Previous class PDFs are available by clicking the Deacon Stole icon to the left.

St HYACINTH LAY DOMINICAN CHAPTER

I have been a Life Professed Lay Dominican since 2012.   I am involved in our local chapter that meets in Visalia, CA.   Our website is available by clicking the Dominican Crest icon to the left.

ROME PILGRIMAGE  -  UNFORTUNATELY RESET TO FALL of  2021

I had to interrupt the process of obtaining a bid for Fall of 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.   My March 2020 Israel pilgrimage was moved to SEP 2020 - creating yet another reason to postpone the Rome Pilgrimage to the Fall of 2021.

We should know future details in the Spring of 2021.  Feel free to email me with your interest in this Pilgrimage anytime - just include your name and a telephone number and I will add you to an interested persons list -- and then contact you as information becomes available
