Roger Ingersoll grew up Presbyterian but became Catholic in 1986. He worked for ExxonMobil for 33 years on a wide range of projects including arctic, coastal, and offshore. After retiring Roger was shocked to see a time lapse satellite video of massive sea ice retreat over the past 15 years (i.e. after his arctic involvement). This, and reading of the Pope’s encyclical 'Laudato Si’, grandchildren, and scuba diving prompted a passion for Care of Creation and Climate Change advocacy. Roger's interests at St. Anthony of Padua include Eucharistic Visitation Ministry, Kolbe Prison Ministry, Care of Creation, ACTS and a couple others. He’s most famously known as Paige’s dad.
