“Reason is one way of finding truth. It is a distinctively human way; animals can't do it. We can. So let's begin.”

Peter Kreeft

Bishop Martin J. Amos, D.D.

 Bishop Amos was born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1941. He attended St. Mary Seminary in Wickliffe, OH and graduated with Master of Science in Education. He was ordained to the priesthood in 1968. In 2001 he was ordained Auxiliary Bishop of Cleveland and in 2006 installed as the eighth Bishop of Davenport, IA.  

During his decade of leadership, the Diocese has addressed many challenges and accomplished many goals, largely due to his clear focus and charitable attitude.  

Bishop Amos was the St. Thomas Aquinas Guild’s first supporter, as its formation required episcopal assistance.
