For better than 40 years, I have been a Bay Village resident and a proud member of St. Raphael.  Over that time, I have been privileged to have served both a three-year term on the Parish Pastoral Council, ending in 1998, and able to increase my faithfulness as a Eucharistic Minister.  I feel privileged to again return to Parish Pastoral Council in 2016.  During time of difficulty, St. Raphael has been a warm and prayerful hand in my life.  Since 2002, I have been a Bay Village Councilman (Ward 1).  Additionally, I work as a Funeral Associate where my past devotion as a Eucharistic Minister may be called upon.  I enjoy being fortunate to give time and service to Church and community.
