Greetings from new director of the institute


Greetings from the new Executive Director.

I look forward to serving the Diocese of Venice. I arrive after serving as the Director of Distance Education and Online Learning for Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit. (I will not miss those Michigan winters!) Before that I worked for Kenrick-Glennon Seminary in St. Louis where I taught theology and served for a time as Academic Dean. While in St. Louis I also taught for the Paul VI Catechetical Institute which had a similar mission to the Institute for Catholic Studies and Formation here in Venice.

I am here in response to God’s call (but it is easy to say “yes” when God calls you to beautiful southwest Florida!)

We are gradually updating the website and will be posting news about upcoming programs and resources — please be patient.

Pray for me and for the mission of the Institute, that it might be an instrument of God’s life giving transformative truth!

– Dr John
