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.
