I am a deacon ordained for the Archbishop of Chicago in 1998 and am employed as Business Manager of a parish in the City of Chicago but am involved in liturgical ministry at St. Lambert Parish in Skokie, IL. I also help produce The Flame, the newsletter for the deacons of the Archdiocese of Chicago. Any opinions expressed on this site are exclusively mine -- unless they make sense, in which case they are undoubtedly stolen from someone else.
