David Mayeux

Theology Teacher

“It is not the task of Christianity to provide easy answers to every question, but to make us progressively aware of a mystery. God is not so much the object of our knowledge as the cause of our wonder.”
—Metropolitan Kallistos Ware


David Mayeux is a Theology teacher at Canongate and a full-time father and homeschooler of four children with his wife. With his family he cherishes building fraternity among his neighbors through charity and fellowship, exploring the riches of natural- and community-life in and around Asheville, and forming one another into “a microbasileia, a miniature kingdom which is the little house of the Lord” (St Clement of Alexandria).
Born on the coast of North Carolina, he spent most of his childhood in Asheville, matriculated at Appalachian State University to be a teacher of high school English, entered into full communion with the Church in Mount Airy (2003), taught English just outside Belmont (where he grew to love the Liturgy of the Hours at Belmont Abbey), returned to the Land of the Sky where he married and started a family, has been a Catechist for RCIA at St Lawrence, an instructor for the Diocesan Lay Ministry Program, and the Catholic Campus Minister for the Diocese of Charlotte at UNC Asheville. He is continually inspired by Stratford Caldecott, Dorothy Day, Pope Benedict XVI, J.R.R. Tolkien, the Desert Fathers, and the evangelical impulse of Bishop Robert Barron.
