Getting to Know Michael


Tell us a little about yourself and your family.

My lovely wife, Paula, and I have been  married for more than 36 years. We have three children, Michael Jr., Brian and Tara; all are married. We have three grandchildren and one on the way. We became parishioners in June 1998 when we moved here from Buffalo, New York.


How long have you worked at the parish and what do you like best about it?

I have a passion for this parish. It is the reason I applied for and accepted the position of Director of Evangelization in June 2016. For a long time I felt God calling me to work for him, and after taking Living Your Strengths and then reading Sherry Waddell’s book, Forming Intentional Disciples, I realized that I was being called to serve in a deeper role than I had at the time.

What I love about my job? The people. I really love   helping people grow in their faith journey.


What are some of your hobbies and interest?

Football … I love football. I watch it, I referee it and I cheer it. I’m a total Clemson fan. Music is my other love, and a talent I’ve been able to offer our Music Ministry; whether playing the trumpet, singing and conducting the choir, it’s a passion that was instilled in me at a very young age by my grandmother who, herself, was a choir mistress and organist.
