Alex Kubik

Director of Parish Life

Kubik, Alex.png

Alex Kubik is a native of New Jersey but always grew up familiar with Alabama, as his grandparents lived in Scottsboro. His father is a deacon in the Byzantine Catholic Church, and Alex was raised with a very diverse and rich experience of what it means to be the Church. He began ringing neighbors’ doorbells to invite them to church at the age of three, much to his mother’s dismay. A product of Catholic schools, Alex’s family provided him opportunities like going to all-night eucharistic adoration with his father, and also to attend vacation bible school at the local Baptist chapel or summer camp at an Evangelical Bible college. It was somewhat routine for his family to attend ancient Eastern Catholic liturgy on Sunday morning, and then join the local Catholic prayer group for a charismatic prayer meeting in the afternoon. Through this broad range of experiences, Alex came to realize that in all places and traditions, the Church is made up of people; people who need relationships, love, care, and to find a home in the Body of Christ.

Alex began college studying to be a music teacher, but the constant draw to work in the Church ultimately led him to other things. He holds a liberal arts degree from Thomas Edison State University and a Master of Arts in Catechetics and Evangelization from Franciscan University of Steubenville. He comes to Prince of Peace with over 25 years of experience in various forms of parish and diocesan ministry. Of particular interest in these experiences has been the study of small, Christian communities, and the vital and important role that true, human relationships play in the work and ministry of the Church.

Alex’s interests include: talking,  meeting new people, watching super-hero movies with his kids, the NY Yankees, hockey, and all sorts of genres of music. He tends to get a little nerdy about music and audio technology, and tries his best to be diplomatic when it comes to SEC football.

Seven years ago, the Kubik’s moved to Alabama when Bishop Baker hired Alex to work at the diocesan chancery as the Director of Discipleship and Mission. Prior to that he spent four years as a parish youth and young adult minister at a parish in Virginia. Alex and his wife Joy have five children ranging from four to seventeen years old. They currently reside in Kimberly, and can most often be found in a carpool line somewhere.
