Brian was raised in Indiana and recently made his way to Sacramento. After many years of searching various Protestant, Roman Catholic, and Eastern Orthodox churches, Brian felt his Catholic spirituality had always been there. In 2008, Brian began to implement a daily monastic spirituality at home. He began learning more and more the beauty and simplicity of the Message of Christ our God. Recently, he discovered the Independent/Old Catholic movement that restores the basic tenants of the early undivided Church into modern day Christian living. Brian is in formation in the Ecumenical Order of Saints Francis and Clare and continues to discern his calling to ordained ministry. He comes to Good Shepherd to root into a loving and living faith community, and serve the parish through the Parish Council.
