I was born and raised Catholic in Sugar Land, Texas, where I attended Catholic school through eighth grade. It was at Catholic school where I first heard God calling me to the priesthood. He continued calling out to me in high school and college. However, it wasn’t until I began to truly give my heart to our Eucharistic Lord and His Holy Mother that I received the strength to answer this call in the affirmative. God has placed me in the arms of Our Lady, and that has made all the difference.
