73 years of life, 60 years of ministry
49 years of marriage to my beloved wife
47 years as a parent to Chris, Annie and Monica
45 years of sharing my original Prayer-Songs
nearly 35 years of ordained diaconal ministry
33 years of hosting pilgrimages and cruises
9 years of happy grand-parenting

I am now “Prepping for my Finals”.

This website is part of that prep for through it I offer you a sampling of my music, travel and diaconal ministry.


Part of that “Prep” is to make my music available without charge to all who will enjoy or benefit from my simple prayer-songs. So, through this website, you can download any of my recorded prayer-songs, and seek permission to reprint, (for personal or ministry use), the lyrics, and where available, the melody lines to my compositions.


donate to champions for the poor

If you wish to participate in my ministry in a monetary fashion, I invite you to contribute through Pay Pal. These gifts will be distributed to a variety of the charities to which I currently support. Or you can contribute directly to my personal Champions for the Poor project in Haiti through a link to Food for the Poor.

invitations to travel with us

Through this website, you will also find an invitation to travel the world with us and some of our world’s most popular Catholic spiritual leaders. I’ll share albums of photos taken on our travels so, if you can’t join us in person, you can travel vicariously through us.

Sharing my Homilies and Reflections

As available, I’ll also share my homilies and reflections, and provide links to the spiritual reflections of others that have touched my life.
