I am a Jesuit priest and member of Jesuits Central and Southern Province, which is a part of the Jesuit Conference of Canada and the United States. I was born in St. Louis, MO, on October 21, 1936, and after attending St. Louis University High School entered the Jesuits in August 1954. I retired to prison ministry at the age of 77 and spend my free time editing Wikipedia articles, mainly on Jesuit or Catholic topics, and taking photos for Wikimedia Commons.
