Dear Friends in Christ,
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
On June 3, 1994, I was ordained to the priesthood for our blessed diocese, and then on January 29, 2014, I was ordained bishop for service in this local Church where I have spent nearly all my adult life. In the 20 years between the two ordinations, I served in several parishes, worked as vicar general for my immediate predecessor, and for more than five years was rector of Holy Trinity Seminary at the University of Dallas. Prior to my priestly ordination, my education and formation included service apostolates in several parishes throughout the twenty-eight counties of North Texas that compose our diocese.
All of those experiences have helped me to come to know many of you and for many of you to come to know me, for which I am grateful. Our shared experiences have prepared me to understand the unique situation of the Church in North Texas...
