Advent is the season of preparing to open our hearts and minds more fully to Christ’s coming into our lives.

He has a great love for Ignatian spirituality and its remarkable relevance to the lives of people in our time. Jesuit Retreat House, located in Parma, has a historic legacy beginning in 1898 as the first and longest continuing place in the United States providing retreats for the laity, and for clergy and religious as well. Rick previously served as Director of the Pastoral Planning Office for the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland for over 32 years. Rick received certification as a Spiritual Director as a graduate of the Ignatian Spirituality Institute at John Carroll University. He has an M.S. in Organizational Development and Analysis and a B.S. in Civil Engineering from Case Western Reserve University.
