ANGEL RODRIGUEZ

My upbringing was blessed with a family that brought me through the Sacraments. After a time away from the Church, through a group of students at Texas A&M and our Blessed Mother, I encountered our Lord Jesus my senior year of college. From there I wanted to serve Him with everything and became a missionary with FOCUS for three years. During that time Jesus and our Mother moved my heart to follow Him in the priesthood.  I resisted for a while, but after surrendering to His call, my heart was set free.

Fun Fact

Graduating from Texas A&M and serving at UT-Austin as a missionary, I conversely love and represent both universities.
