Eric and his family have been parishioners at St. Francis de Sales since 2002. Eric is married to Maggie Wright for 25 years. They have seven children who range in age from 6 to 25 years old. Their children are involved in several activities and ministries offered at St. Francis in both the school and parish. Some of these activities include serving at Mass, middle/high school youth group, drama club, math counts, Schola choir, and lectoring. Eric and Maggie are very grateful that each of their children have had the benefit of developing strong relationships with Jesus Christ through the parish, school, and in their family.
For the past 15 years, Eric has served in many ministries at St. Francis and continues to serve wherever he is needed. Eric has served on the parish council and the liturgy committee. He has also helped with The Loop and ABC. He is involved with the middle/high school youth groups and serves at Mass.
Over the next few years, Eric will be in formation for the permanent diaconate, studying at the Pontifical College Josephinum seminary, while also getting training and experience in parish life at St. Francis, under the direction of Fr. Dave and the staff.
Eric asks for your prayers, both for him and his family. He requests that you please pray that they might have patience, wisdom, and understanding as they make this journey together; pray for his continued discernment and development so that he might have all that he needs over these next three years to grow in God's grace and do His will. He humbly thanks you.
