I am Catholic, married to Cathy, father of Maddy & Mia. I was once a Lutheran pastor, but a “year of grace” and soul-searching led me into the Catholic Church. It was a bumpy ride, but with the support of my (still Lutheran) wife, I was finally confirmed on June 16, 2003.
That was a long time ago now. From 2002 to 2020, I was the Executive Officer of the Ecumenical & Interfaith Commission of the Archdiocese of Melbourne. But changes at the Archdiocese led me to the opportunity to continue studying, and right now I am completing my Masters degree in Theology at the University of Divinity. I also am a casual academic at the Australian Catholic University and editor of the Council of Christians and Jews (Vic.) annual journal “Gesher”.
