|Fr. Alex has touched and enriched the lives of thousands of people in Central South Dakota, India and Brazil for over 50 years. The past decade of his life has been particularly challenging as he has had to battle terminal cancer. This infirmity has made him even more determined. Fr. Alex has the rare ability to look beyond the faith of those he ministers to or those he considers a friend. He also has the unique ability to bring people together when responding to those most in need whether parishioner, professional or persuading a national figure like Mother Theresa to come to the U.S. to raise funds for her work. Fr. Alex is comfortable in responding to the call wherever it is needed.
On the lighter side, Fr. Alex restores vintage vehicles and sells them to people in need. Fr. Alex says he has been in the spiritual restoration business his whole life.
