Michael served as the director of the papal visit of Pope John Paul II to Baltimore.
During Fr. Michael’s tenure as pastor at Church of the Nativity, the church has almost tripled in weekend attendance. More importantly, commitment to the mission of the Church has grown, evidenced by the significant increase of giving and service in ministry, and much evidence of genuine spiritual renewal. Fr. Michael is the coauthor of Rebuilt – which narrates the story of Nativity’s rebirth – Tools for Rebuilding, and Rebuilding Your Message.
