Greetings Divine Redeemer.  Let me start by saying how grateful I am to be assigned to this parish and to be asked to serve this community.  I very much look forward to getting to know each of you better.  In the meantime, a brief introduction. 
Michelle and I are lifelong Catholics, we were both born and raised in South Dakota, and we've been blessed with six beautiful children:  Alexandra, Robert, Mark, Elizabeth, Mary and Katharine.  I first came to Colorado in the mid-80s as a cadet at the Air Force Academy and immediately fell in love with the state.  Which means I was delighted that the Air Force stationed me in Colorado for the majority of my 28 years of service.  After retiring six years ago, we returned to the Springs and almost immediately I began commuting to Missouri where I served as the president of the Vitae Foundation, a pro-life research and marketing non-profit.  Two years ago I was hired to be the president of St. Mary's High School.  During my time at St. Mary's my admiration for the Divine Redeemer community has only grown.  So again, I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to serve each of you and the entire Divine Redeemer family.  Thank you!
