Director of Formation
Contact for: RCIA, Middle School Faith Formation, Electronic Communication, Youth Ministry, and Ministry to the Homebound
Brian is the newest addition to our staff at St. John's, having moved into his position on our formation team in June, 2015.
After double majoring in philosophy and religious studies at Eureka College in Illinois, Brian came up to Minnesota to undergo formation in the seminary. He finished his philosophy degree after discerning priesthood wasn't God's plan for him, and continued his studies in the lay master's theology program at the Saint Paul Seminary School of Divinity at St. Thomas University.
Brian is married to Michelle Quinn Kusek - a fifth grade teacher in our Catholic elementary system! You might see him playing music in local venues, or discussing Church history over a cup of coffee.
