We would like to give a special welcome to our new Respect Life Coordinator, Peter Range.
Peter graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a Masters in Theology and a focus in Biblical Studies in 2009. Preceding Notre Dame, Peter received his Bachelor of Arts in History from John Carroll University in 2004. Upon his graduation from John Carroll, Peter spent a year volunteering in Immokalee, Florida where he worked with immigrant and migrant families. He continued his volunteer experience at St. Martin de Porres High School, part of the Cristo Rey Network of Schools in Cleveland, Ohio where he worked with inner city youth.

After experiencing the love of Jesus Christ on a 30 day silent retreat, Peter moved on to ‘Opportunity House’ where he lived with former foster care young men who were formerly homeless. While at Opportunity House, Peter also worked vigorously for the ’40 days for life’ campaign to spread a culture of life in Cleveland and beyond.
Finally, Peter began his time at St. Thomas More University Parish as Lead Campus Minister in the summer of 2011 which included leading a Bible Study at our LaPosada Emergency Family Shelter. The fifth of six children, Peter is passionate about family, service and encountering the one true God, Jesus Christ. He loves to read, play sports and simply converse on life’s biggest issues and questions.
