Ken has been a cradle Catholic, but didn't practice his faith for many years before returning to the Church in 2003.  He absolutely loves his Catholic faith and has been active in his parish as an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion, Lector and has also participated in Christ Renews His Parish, Men of Ascension and Fathers of St. Joseph.  In September of 2018, he and his wife Patty began Project Chrysalis, a ministry to help parents who have lost a child.  Ken is  currently in formation for the Permanent Diaconate in the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas. God willing, he will be ordained in June of 2020.
