Growing up in Globe life was joyful, my parents Alan and Freda Scott and my sister Ann along with my Grandparents and my Aunts Adele and Selma made for an enriching family life. As I grew I played piano, acted in school plays, served my parish as an Altar Boy, Lector, and Cantor, enjoyed playing sports – in particular Golf – and achieved at academics. All this set a firm foundation for my college years at Arizona State University where I graduated with a degree in History.
After graduation I pursued a career in Real Estate and for the last 31 years have worked for Maricopa County, currently as the Real Property Branch Manager.
In 1985 I moved to Scottsdale and while attending Mass at Our Lady of Perpetual Help I saw Penni Harrington in the choir. I leaned over to my Godmother and proclaimed “Someday I am going to marry that girl” – and on December 30, 1989 I married Penni Harrington – she is the love of my life.
Together Penni and I have done music ministry throughout the Diocese of Phoenix – her with incredible talent, passion, and love, me playing Bass Guitar. It was at Resurrection Catholic Church in Tempe during the Year of the Priest in which our parish had a First Thursday devotion for vocations that I received a calling and began my formation for the Permanent Diaconate
Now my journey is coming full circle back to Scottsdale and I am assigned to St. Maria Goretti Parish, which happens to be the parish church for the neighborhood in which I have lived since 1985.
Favorite Saints – Our Blessed Mother Mary, St. Peter, St. Thomas More, and Pope St. John Paul the Great.
Parish – St. Maria Goretti
