My name is Peter Alexander and I was recently hired as the  Coordinator of Junior High and Young Adult Ministry at St. Thomas Aquinas Parish in Avondale, Arizona.  I graduated from Franciscan University of Steubenville with a degree in Theology and a degree in Catechetics.  I also met my beautiful wife, Jessica, while studying at Franciscan and in my humble opinion, my wife is the most awesome person on the planet.  After graduating, we felt God strongly calling us to come be a part of the Catholic Church in Phoenix, Arizona so we packed up and moved across the country on what has been an amazing adventure so far.  The first stop of our adventure was in Anthem, Arizona where I had the great opportunity to serve as Coordinator of Youth & Young Adult Ministry at St. Rose Philippine Duchesne Parish. My favorite things to do in Arizona are going camping and watching bull riding.  I am passionate about my faith and music. I enjoy playing the piano and the guitar.


NStanleyMy name is Nicole Stanley and I am the new Coordinator for High School Ministry. I graduated from Florida State University last year, moved out to the desert, married my college sweetheart in October, and now get the joy of working with all of you. I grew up on the West Coast of Florida near Clearwater Beach which explains my love for water sports and volleyball. I also enjoy coffee dates, adventure, and good conversation.

When I was in high school, I encountered Jesus in a powerful way and God turned my life upside down. Ever since then, I have sought out many opportunities to work in ministry to invite others to meet Christ. I’ve gotten the privilege to work for different ministries such as Military Community Youth Ministries in Germany, Life Teen, and the Brotherhood of Hope doing Campus Ministry in Tallahassee, Florida. I am thrilled to be serving you and pray we can all experience the abundant life that God has for us and for this parish together. Stop by and introduce yourself, I would love to meet you!
