After receiving his BA in classical Liberal Arts from Thomas Aquinas College in 2010, Charlie then spent seven years as a seminarian at St. Michael’s Abbey in Silverado, California. Charlie continued his studies in philosophy and theology during this time, earning a second BA in Fundamental Theology from St. Phillip’s Seminary in Toronto.
