Where I serve

Assumption College is a Catholic liberal arts college located in the heart of Massachusetts. Founded in 1904 by the Augustinians of the Assumption to serve the local Catholic French-Canadian community, Assumption's Catholic roots go deep. Much of the campus is laden with a Catholic instinct, and students are hungry to reclaim their faith as their own.

My Story

I have desired to restore the culture for as long as I could remember. Whether it was through teaching, writing, or photography, I wanted to help heal the brokenness that affects our modern world. For the longest time, I thought I could best accomplish this work by working in Washington, D.C. I thought that if the right bill was passed, or if the right reform was implemented, we could start moving our culture in the right direction.

After a long period of thought, prayer, and interaction with the political sphere, I came to realize that no law is going to change the world. Laws, in and of themselves, are not marks of culture but a reflection of that culture. And the culture, in turn, is a reflection of individual values. It is not by changing laws that we will save our culture, but by changing hearts. 

Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help me through this mission. I've been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with me as I serve on campus. If you are interested in partnering with me or wish to put me in contact with a specific student on campus, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I'd be honored to share this mission with you.
