John brings with him a vast amount of business, legal and pastoral experience as a former teacher, college president, ‘Fortune 100’ corporate attorney, and a Catholic high school principal.
As Chancellor, John will be responsible for those duties pertaining to the office as defined in Canon Law, such as Notary and record keeper of official Archdiocesan documents. John will also assist with daily operations, planning, and policy review.
Because John grew up in Alaska, he is already familiar with the Archdiocese, and is well known and respected by many, both within the Church and the broader community.
John is currently working within the Archdiocese at Lumen Christi Catholic School, where he has served since 2013. His sharp intellect, inquisitive mind and warm personality are just a few of the many gifts he brings to his new role, serving the entire Archdiocese of Anchorage, starting January 15, 2018.
