This website describes the Catholic resources that I have created and the presentations I offer.

I am a husband, dad, grandad and teacher who loves teaching and catechesis. I have been blessed to serve the Ontario Catholic community for over 40 years. My books about religious education, catechesis and spirituality have brought me in touch with an audience beyond classrooms through presentations and retreats  for Catholic parishes, teachers, administrators, and parents. Currently, I’m working with the St. Monica Institute to bring a series of programs and activities called Walking Paths of Beauty. The first of these is a monthly online Visio Divina gathering called Abide in Beauty.
