CHRISTIAN MICHAEL CIMORELLI
I was born in northern California to a beautiful family of what would be 11 children. I spent my childhood swimming, reading and playing with my siblings in the foothills and the ocean. We always went to Mass on Sunday, even if we had sunburns from a water polo tournament. I first heard the call of the Lord quietly and at a young age, but I did not listen until I began to pray I have since found great peace in the opportunity to discern a vocation to the priesthood, and I am so glad to be here.
