Fr. John has been a priest for 33 years. He came to Resurrection in July of 2009. Preaching and visiting parishioners homes are the favorite parts of ministry for him. He also enjoys traveling and the out of doors.
My given name is "John", but somehow I got the name "Skip" as a little boy. My family and friends call me "Skip" and I hope you do as we'll. My wife Janet and I have been extremely blessed to be part of the Resurrection community over the past 10 years and look forward to helping you encounter the Lord, love His Mother, and serve His Church.
By the way, I like oldies from the 50's and 60's, chocolate anything, Italian wine, the Ravens, but most of all being with my family and friends.
