Tom has ministered as a pastor at , St. Thomas More Parish/Tulane Catholic Center, New Orleans and served as the Student Master in St. Louis, 1993-2000. He also served as Director of St. Martin de Porres Shrine and Institute, Memphis.
A long time film student, Tom also publishes his reviews and film observations in the newsletter of St. Martin Province.
Writing for DomLife.org, he says, “I like to write with perspectives for the preacher, teacher, or pastoral minister in mind. Film is a powerful medium for expression which is accesible to just about everyone, especially with the easy availability of DVD’s, Videotapes, movie channels, etc. I think we as Dominicans should be open to looking at them critically, and not just for entertainment sake. “
