I am the Director of the Office of Marriage and Family Life Ministry for the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City. I came to this position from a background in philosophy, with academic specializations in Ethics and the Philosophy of the Human Person. I now seek to make use of that background in order to establish and strengthen sacramental marriages. As the philosopher Robert Spaemann often writes, “There are only persons in the plural.”

My writings have appeared in venues such as Aleteia, the National Catholic Register, Crisis Magazine, and the Imaginative Conservative. That said, I am always on the hunt for new venues in which my writing can appear; as a former professor, I never run short on things to say!

I am also always happy to give a talk at your parish or to your group. Below is a link to a talk I gave many years ago on “Grace and Nature” for the first-year students at the Catholic University of America.

I hope you enjoy this blog. Please feel free to email me your questions or comments at alexanderschimpf@gmail.com

    Your talk reminds me much of my style in the classroom as well. As a new grad of a graduate program and adjunct professor I can’t wait to share notes and read what you have to write! Virginia for the win!

      Thanks! Sometimes I worry that my classes get too fun. But then I have days when everyone is asleep and I realize that there’s not much danger of that actually happening.

      Glad to hear you are returning to VA!

        Absolutely, I traipse that fine like in order to keep things fresh and new. I find that the fact that we seem to be less removed from their generation is helpful not only in our understanding of them, but also in how they view us.
