Coordinator of Interfaith Center and Spirituality Services

Michael earned his graduate degree in Social Work from Fordham University. He has worked in a variety of fields helping people grow in their faith formation. Michael served as the Director of Youth Ministry for Sts. Peter and Paul Church, as a clinical Social Worker integrating spirituality into the healing process and most recently Michael founded the Community Growth Center, a non-profit holistic community center that works to provide people opportunities to grow in their mental, physical and spiritual wellness. Michael feels called to help people of all faiths and spiritual traditions open up their hearts to the peace and joy that comes from spiritual practices and growth.

Michael’s role as the Coordinator of the Interfaith Center is to support the existing religious groups on campus and help them provide opportunities for students to deepen their faith. He also works to create a space for spiritual exploration and contemplation for all of Adelphi students that are interested in connecting with a spiritual practice but may not feel connected to a specific religion.
