Deacon Michael grew up in the Anoka area, and currently lives in St. Michael with his wife Karen, who he has been married to for 30 years, and who have two adult sons who live in St. Michael. Deacon Michael works full-time as the Director of Pastoral Care for the Glenn Catholic Senior Community in Minnetonka, where he serves as their Chaplain. Deacon Michael was ordained in 2010 and has been serving at St. John’s since August of 2022. He enjoys deer hunting and fishing in the Northwoods of Wisconsin when he has some free time, and enjoys local sports teams, making BBQ, and having a good beer. His true passion, however, is for God, especially through the liturgical Rites and prayers of our Catholic Faith.
