Biography -14

After graduating with a B.A. in Speech and Drama from DePaul University, I taught in the Archdiocesan school system for 13 years followed by 28 years in IT with Kemper Insurance, Kemper Financial and SunGard Investment Systems. In 1970 I received an M. A. in Theatre from the University of Illinois.  

My wife, Judy and I have been blessed with three children, a daughter and two sons. A member of St. Celestine in Elmwood Park for 38 years, my involvement has been with the School Board, Pastoral Council, Finance Committee, wake ministry, youth ministry, choir, cantor team, and the lector ministry.  

Over the past 40 years my avocation has focused on the performing arts working with all age levels at church, in elementary and high schools, colleges and in the community.  

I continue to participate in our Faith, but have been increasingly disheartened by the direction my Church has taken over the past 35 years, steadily, blindly trying to put the toothpaste back into the tube. I wait to be assured by the Holy Spirit that, “this is but a second in God’s reckoning and it too shall pass.”
