FINGERPRINTS ON THE CEILING
You can also find Andrew on Awaken Catholic, a local powerful ministry and talk show, led by some of the holy men and women he met during his years serving on our parish team.
I was a seminarian in the Diocese of Toledo...for four years. As I was discerning out, Fr. Mike had been the pastor at the time and part of my discernment into seminary, and so I had talked to him about my decision to leave. He proposed joining him and coming here to St. Tom’s. So when I left seminary and came here, I was technically a Missionary and was primarily the advisor to the Men’s Household. The next year I became the Campus Minister. There was a lot of working with the students and helping organize all of the on-campus stuff, as well as one on one and discipleship with the student leadership.
One of the most enriching things was discipleship mentoring with the student leaders. Just being able to be part of their life and walking with them as they pursued holiness, so much of what I saw in the students inspired me and challenged me since I wasn’t that much older than them. A lot of the students I was mentoring became my friends, they were running as fast as I was!
