Patrick is driven by a desire to share the transformative message of the gospel with the next generation of leaders - our college students. After attending a week of Catholic Youth Summer Camp as an eighth grader, Patrick began to experience the powerful love of the Father and a deepening relationship with the Lord. From this foundation a call to the missionary life grew.

After high school, Patrick discerned the priesthood for three years in minor seminary. From there, he spent a gap year as a Missionary with NET Ministries, and finally became involved with Saint Paul's Outreach as a college senior. After his graduation, he served as a Mission Leader for SPO at the Ohio State University and Ohio Dominican University for two years, and as the Director of Operations for the Ohio Mission Center for one year.

Now, Patrick serves as the Male Chapter Leader for Benedictine College and oversees the Mission Leaders serving at Benedictine. His vision is to lead his staff to experience transformation in Christ as they proclaim the Gospel to the students of Benedictine.
