My name is Phil Stone and I am overjoyed to be joining Fr. Kyle and the dynamic ministry team at STA as the new Director of Evangelization and Faith Formation!

My wife Suzee and I have been married for 14 years and have been blessed with 3 sons: Joseph, Adrian, and Maximilian. Suzee and I both grew up here in central Iowa and consider the Ames/Des Moines area home. We both had various connections to ISU and STA growing up and started dating after going on an STA mission trip to Williamsburg, KY together in 2004. I am a 2006 graduate of Benedictine College with a B.A. in Theology and Philosophy. My ministry experience began with spending a year doing Youth Ministry in Belize post-graduation. After getting married, I taught high school Theology at Dowling Catholic, served for 7 years on campus with FOCUS at both UMD and MNSU in Minnesota, and then went on to raise funds for the St. Thomas More Newman Center in Mankato.

My family and I are very happy to be back home in central Iowa and looking forward to serving the St. Thomas Aquinas Parish Family!
