One of the joys of my life is that I am able to use my photography for the good of the Diocese of Knoxville. And I was pleased to see this compilation of images from our past year, including my own.
I admit, I am an unabashed Catholic - I'm not always a happy Catholic, but I am always happy to be Catholic. I am what they call a "cradle Catholic," meaning I was born to a family who had me baptized into the faith before I was even a month old and sent me to Catholic schools. I do the same for my kids.
I moved to East Tennessee in June 2011 and became a member of the Diocese of Knoxville. In short time, I was allowed the opportunity to provide my skills in building His kingdom here in East Tennessee and I am grateful.
After all, I am grateful to God for His gifts, including letting me know what to do when I pick up a camera. So it is only right I give that back to His people. We Catholics are called to give our time, talents, and treasures for charity, and such that it extends beyond the walls of the church to all peoples.
