For the past 20 years Shane has been involved in evangelism and catechesis in the Archdiocese of St. Louis. He has served on the core teams of both a Catholic charismatic youth group and LifeTeen program as well as coordinating programs for the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults and ongoing faith formation. He was a long-time member of the Archdiocese's Retreat, Evangelization, and Prayer (REAP) Team and writes for Catholic Exchange and Catholic Lane. He is the author of The God Who is Love: Explaining Christianity From Its Center and co-author of Tending The Temple. He and Dr. Kevin Vost can be heard on EWTN Radio the third Saturday of the month (1-2 p.m. ET), discussing a variety of issues. Shane also holds an M.A. in Speech-Language Pathology and is engaged in clinical practice.
He vehemently maintains, however, that his "best gig" is being the father of two.
