Sean is responsible for the overall direction and supervision of Faith Formation, Youth Ministry, and Adult Education. He serves as the staff liaison to the Stewardship Council and Evangelization Committee. Along with Father Kevin, Sean also ensures that everything we do at Our Lady of Grace is leading our parishioners to a living relationship with Jesus Christ as his disciples.


Sean is married to a beautiful woman of God named Barbara and has a two-year-old son named Seamus. He studied Philosophy at St. Cloud State and then Theology at Franciscan University of Steubenville. Sean has been in parish ministry for 14 years, all of which have been in some aspect of formation. He loves working for the church because Jesus is just down the hall and because you get to share his Good News with others.
