Before joining the Salesians, I taught for many years at the Jesuit College in Malta. I was also the Coordinator of a residential drug rehabilitation program for young adults as well as counselor with the State agency for the prevention of drug use in Malta.
On entering the Salesians, I completed my philosophical studies at the University of Malta obtaining a S.Th.B. After two years of teaching at Savio Salesian College in Malta, I moved to Rome where I obtained a BA in theology. In 2006 I moved to Dublin, Ireland where I received a Masters in Holistic Pastoral Theology from All Hallows College. I was ordained in the same year in Malta and was assigned to teach at Savio Salesian College. At that time, I served as a catechist, Oratory director, teacher, and confessor. I then moved to St. Patrick’s Salesian School, where I continued to teach and minister to the students. During this time, I also attended the University of Malta reading for a Masters in Spiritual Theology which I received in 2011.
I moved back to Rome to attend the Salesian Pontifical University where I received a Doctoral degree in Sacred Theology with particular concentration on Salesian Spirituality.
I joined the staff at Don Bosco Hall, Berkley in January 2015 serving on the formation team and as a professor at the Institute of Salesian Studies. I am also the Editor in Chief of the Journal of Salesian Studies.
