Upon his appointment as St. Theresa's pastor a year or so ago, he has again embraced the Knights via our local council, as well as being a stable presence in our parish family. He has worked through the ins and outs of a very complicated building process and navigated the construction of our new youth building, which has been named C.I.T.Y. (stands for Christ in the Youth).
