Father Andy was ordained in May 2006 as a priest for the Diocese of Cleveland and is currently the Director of Field Education at Human Formation at St. Mary and Borromeo Seminaries. He was raised in Hudson, Ohio, where he attended Saint Mary Parish. He completed his undergraduate degree in Organizational Communication at Ohio University, and worked for a short time as a consultant for Ernst & Young, LLP, before entering the seminary. He is an organizer of the Diocesan Catholic Family Festival-The FEST, and has done yearly missionary work in the Dominican Republic since 2006. Father Andy’s involvement in Catholic Life Teen during high school helped him to recognize God calling to service in the Church, and to focus his passion for leading others to know their God given talents and gifts. Besides teaching in the seminary, he also enjoys leading high school retreats and conferences, teaching martial arts, and going whitewater rafting and skydiving.
