Peter and his wife Joy have three teenage children.
Peter has worked in full-time ministry for over thirty-five years. His pastoral experience encompasses many different lay ministry positions. He served for almost nine years as a parish life coordinator in the Diocese of San Bernardino, California, where he was responsible for overseeing all aspects of pastoral ministry and the administration of a large parish. Peter currently serves as Director of Christian Life and Ecumenical Officer for the Diocese of Joliet (IL). Pete’s passion is to help others both grow in their relationship with the Lord and live out their God-given purpose in life.
