Hello and thanks for visiting our website. If you are a visitor, thank you for your interest in St. Joseph Catholic Church. I hope our website reflects the dedication our parishioners have to God and neighbor. We seek to make Jesus Christ present in the Fayetteville area through worship and loving service.
If you are a St. Joseph parishioner, calling St. Joseph your spiritual home, I thank you for the privilege of being your pastor. My role is to help bring you closer to God through the celebration of the sacraments and the proclamation of His Word. I thank you also for your support for me personally and for your involvement in the parish. None of my ministry happens in isolation; I rely on all of you to make it happen.
A little about me...
I was ordained a priest for the Diocese of Little Rock on July 9, 2005. I then returned to the seminary for a year of further studies, completing a License of Sacred Theology (S.T.L.) in 2006. From 2006 to 2007, I served as associate pastor at Christ the King in Little Rock. I then served as associate pastor at St. Raphael in Springdale and St. Mary in Siloam Springs in 2007. In November 2008, I was named parish administrator in Siloam Springs, a position I held until June 2009. I then spent 6 1/2 years as pastor of St. Edward in Little Rock before becoming pastor here at St. Joseph on December 1, 2015. Along with St. Joseph, I am pastor of the Chapel of Saints Peter and Paul in Lincoln and of the Shrine of Our Lady of the Ozarks in Winslow. I am the oldest of four children. My parents live in Morrilton, Arkansas, where I grew up.
When I'm not in church or at some parish event, you might see me watching a baseball game or out running somewhere along the Razorback Regional Greenway.
