Paul faithfully served the Catholic Church, spending 16 years at The Criterion, serving as a writer and photographer. Paul then became Public Information Director for Marian College, always proudly representing the school in the most positive light. There he was more than just the PID, he was an ambassador for the college. He took pride in educating students and visitors on the significance of the college with the original owners of the Indy 500, which all had mansions on the campus. He especially loved giving tours of the Allison Mansion, with specific details of how it was built. Paul also made it a point to get to know the names of each student and especially the English as a Second language (ELS) students that came to Marian from different countries in the Middle East, S. America and Asia.
