My name is Garrett Forck and I teach seventh and eighth grade students about the New Testament and Church History here at St. Thomas Aquinas. These are both topics that I am extremely passionate about and excited to teach. Beyond educating our students in the Catholic faith, though, I desire to introduce them to a personal relationship with Our Lord. Knowledge of, coupled with a personal connection with Jesus Christ and His Church is a perfect foundation in creating true disciples that will eventually set the world on fire.
A little background about myself is that this is my first year here at St. Thomas! I was born and raised in Jefferson City, MO. After high school I went to Conception Seminary College for two years. After two years I discerned that God was not calling me to be a priest and so I moved back home and got my degree in Middle School Education Social Studies from Lincoln University. After graduating, I spent a year as a Youth and Young Adult Minister at St. Peter Parish in Jefferson City. Then this past summer I moved to Wichita and have been blessed with this amazing opportunity to teach at St. Thomas. Praise God!
