He serves Scranton, PA as Pastor of St. Thomas More Catholic Church, a parish of converts to Catholicism from the Anglican tradition.

His articles have been published in Anglican Embers, This Rock, and Catholic Men's Quarterly.
Father Bergman's lecture is part of an ongoing series sponsored by The Institute of Catholic Culture, an adult catechetical organization, faithful to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church, and dedicated to the Church’s call for a new evangelization. The Institute seeks to fulfill its mission by offering education programs structured upon the classical liberal arts and by offering opportunities in which authentic Catholic culture is experienced and lived.
