The Youth Group will be led by

He attended a Legionary High School in New Hampshire, and after graduating in 2001, joined the Legionary novitiate in Cheshire, CT. He spent the majority of his years of formation in Europe, namely Germany, Spain and Italy. He did three years of pastoral internship in St. Louis, MO working with youth.
