Eric Ruszala

Eric Ruszala has been on the faculty of St. Anthony Catholic High School for two years teaching Theology I, Theology III, and Apologetics. Before moving to Texas, he taught in a small Catholic middle school in Michigan for 10 years. He also worked in a parish ministry for a number of years as a director of religious education, youth ministry coordinator and other roles. He has received a BA and MA from Madonna University, a MA in pastoral theology from St. Joseph’s College of Maine and has been accepted into a doctoral program in Catholic School Leadership through St. Louis University. His wife is a medical student at UIW’s School of Osteopathic Medicine and they are expecting their first child. He enjoys baseball and hockey games and says whenever he’s in a new city his first stops are the cathedral and the ballpark. He finds his students to be friendly, respectful and open to learning about their faith. The theology team is a great group to work with and he enjoys the weeks that he is responsible for planning liturgies and prayer services in the chapel.
