Mike was raised by a wonderful Catholic mother. He was catechized and read the Bible. He became confused, however, when in college he was asked if he was saved. He didn’t know how to answer and thus though he must not be saved. His departure for the Church was solidified when he and his future wife began “church shopping.” At first, they joined an Evangelical Presbyterian congregation. Later Mike attended seminary and, in 2002, was ordained a priest in the Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches. Soon after he found his way home to the Catholic Church.
