Born and raised in Maryland, Father grew up in a rural area of Northern Baltimore on 9 acres. He is the second oldest child of 8, 6 girls and 2 boys. Lacking a good school, all the siblings were homeschooled while participating in many extracurricular events: sports teams riding clubs, art classes, family coops. The whole family has grown up helping with the family business, specialized in wetland plants. In 10th grade, Father went to Blessed Virgin Mary of God Academy, an SSPX boarding school in Warners, New York.
In 2011, he entered St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary. He was ordained by Bishop Tissier de Mallerais on June 22, 2018.
On weekends, Father travels and serves Our Lady of Victory Church in Davie.
