Wayne is a lifelong resident of Maryland and currently resides in Catonsville. Married in 1983 to Julie, they have two children, Martha and Grady. In 1998 Wayne came into full communion with the Catholic Church and immediately became more involved as a volunteer and catechetical leader. In 2002 he began professional ministry as a Coordinator of Youth Ministry, and in 2016 was named Pastoral Associate for his home parish of St. Agnes and St. William of York. He has served on the Archdiocesan Response Team, the Beyond the Boundaries committee, the USCCB-affiliated Catholic Mobilizing Network, directed justice and peace programs for youth, and is a frequent workshop and retreat facilitator. Prior to full-time ministry Wayne worked 25 years in the film and video media production industry as a director, writer, camera operator and editor. His hobbies include photography, cooking, writing poetry, and personal research on the American Civil War and the Holocaust.

The greatest gift we can give is our presence to another. I am always blessed by the opportunity to accompany others on their journey.
