I was ordained a Deacon on June 10, 2017 after 5 years of study in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles Diaconate Formation program. My wife Rose and I have 2 school aged sons. I am very involved in the English speaking Baptism ministry and a little involved with many other ministries at OLG. I am also a recovering drug addict/alcoholic and am active in a 12 step program. I enjoy talking with people and sharing hope about addiction recovery for them and/or their loved ones. I also have a manufacturing and service business outside of Church life that is based on the swimming pool maintenance industry.
