Luke is a convert to Catholicism. He grew up a "lazy atheist" but came to know Christ and His Church in his 20s. He attended UW Oshkosh and received his BA in Criminal Justice. A priest that saw Luke's aptitude for theology encouraged him to attend graduate school. Wanting to stay in the area, Luke received his Master's degree from St. Norbert College. During his undergrad and post-graduate studies Luke worked unloading trucks. Luke is an avid student of the faith and encourages all to really learn about the Lord and the Church He founded for our salvation.
Luke loves teaching the faith to all ages. He does this for St. Mary's as head of our religious education program, as the youth ministry supervisor and as a teacher in our Catholic School. If you have questions about the faith, Luke would love to help you discover the answers.
Luke is an avid sports fan. He retired from amateur baseball in 2012 after 12 seasons. He continues to play rec basketball, softball and occasionally volleyball. He lives in Neenah with his son Michael.
