Fr. Charlie is an Assistant Professor of Mathematics. He was born and raised in Chicago, where his parents and two sisters still reside. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics from Baylor University in Waco, Texas, in 1995. In 2000, he completed his doctoral studies in Mathematics at the University of Notre Dame. It was while at Notre Dame in the PhD program that Fr. Charlie met the priests of Holy Cross. Attracted by the possibility of serving God's people through education, he entered Moreau Seminary in 2002. He enjoyed a variety of ministries during his formation years including a year, 2006-2007, at the University of Portland. He served as a deacon at Christ the King Parish in South Bend and was ordained a priest in April, 2009. Fr. Charlie returned to the University of Portland in the fall of 2009; he feels honored and excited to serve this great institution as a priest-professor -- and especially the men of Villa as their pastoral resident.
