About me:

At an early age I experienced the presence of God through the community and the rituals of the Catholic Church through my parish life and Catholic high school.   Seeking to share the love of Christ I experienced, I felt a strong calling to the priesthood in the Roman Catholic tradition.   I earned my bachelor’s degree in History from Trinity College in Hartford and prepared for the priesthood at the North American College in Rome.   Later I received a master’s degree in Canon Law from St. Paul University in Ottawa, Canada. From 1992 to 1999, I was in active ministry in Connecticut.

Today I live in New York City with my husband of 8 years and am continuing my service with CITI Ministries

I am available to officiate weddings, preside at funerals, memorial services, wakes and committals as well as other sacred rites.
