Oblate Profile

Lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Tell us something about yourself

I have three wonderful adult children, three grandchildren and a loving wife, Kate, who is a Unitarian Universalist minister. I grew up in the Susquehanna River Valley at the foot of Bald Eagle Mountain in Williamsport, PA, and, until moving to the Washington DC area about eight years ago, was a life-long Pennsylvania resident. Because I grew up surrounded by nature and in the woods and streams constantly, I have a special connection to and love of nature (one reason we have 2 dogs).

These are our two canine companions, Amy and Rory.

Why are you an oblate?

To more closely connect with my spiritual home-my community of the soul. The most important things to me are community – including my family - peace based on social justice and inner, spiritual peace, and sustaining the natural world. It’s also very important to me that the life I lead resonates closely with and is in line with those things I value. I find all of this within the Mt. St. Benedict community.
