Background:

Raised as a “military brat”, traveled throughout the United States and to Taiwan. After dad’s retirement from the Army we moved to Cascade, Idaho in 1963; and then in 1965 to Darby, Montana were I began high school. In 1969, following graduation I attended Carroll College in Helena. I was confirmed into the Catholic Church in April 1973 at Borromeo Chapel at Carroll by Bishop Hunthausen, following a lengthy chat with the bishop at the chancery. Graduated in 1973 with a degree in Elementary Education from Carroll. After taking a year off and working at a Day-care center in Forest Grove, Oregon I entered St. Thomas Seminary in Seattle. After the seminary closing in 1977, I took 6 months off and worked at St. Joseph Parish in Butte. In January 1978 I returned to the seminary, only this time at Mount Angel in Oregon. Graduated with a Masters of Divinity in May 1979.
