He has ministered in a number of parishes in Napa, Sonoma, Lake, Mendocino and Del Norte counties.  He has also taught in three Catholic high schools in the diocese, including Justin-Siena HS in Napa.  He has a Masters degree in education from Boston College and a License in Canon Law from the “Angelicum” university in Rome.  He has served as pastor of St. Apollinaris parish in Napa since June 2019 and concurrently serves as the Judicial Vicar of the Diocese of Santa Rosa.

March 1st, with Reverend Jay Lang:

Rev. Jay Lang is the minister of the Napa Valley Center for Spiritual Living on Coombs St. for the past 9 years. He has Master’s Degrees in Theology and in Marriage and Family Counseling. Previously he served as a staff minister at a large Center for Spiritual Living and before that a high school guidance counselor, both in Denver.  There are over 400 Centers for Spiritual Living primarily in in the U.S. and Canada, but also in Mexico, and 9 other countries. He believes God is within and all around us and that there are many paths to knowing this innermost God.  The most effective ones require inner reflection and/or participation in a heart-centered community. He and his Center’s mission is to help create a world that works for everyone by living intentionally, loving unconditionally, and seeing God in all people and all faiths. They are an inclusive community with Sunday services, community events, adult education classes, and weekly meditation circles.

May 10th, with Peter Coyote:

Recently he has done Vietnam, The History of Country Music, a six hour series on Ernest Hemingway and most recently The American Buffalo for Mr. Burns.

Mr. Coyote’s memoir of the 1960’s counter-culture Sleeping Where I Fall which received universally excellent reviews, and a chapter of which won a Pushcart Prize for excellence, has been in continuous print since 1999. His second book, The Rainman’s Third Cure: An Irregular Education, about mentors and the search for wisdom, was nominated as one of the top five non-fiction books published in California in 2015. Last year he published The Tongue of a Crow, his first book of poems, and The Lone Ranger and Tonto Meet the Buddha, about his workshops with masks and improv exercise to induce altered states.
