Hometown: Laredo, Texas
Home Parish: St. Gertrude the Great, Kingsville
Upon entering college I made the conscious effort to place God at the center of my life. Despite the culture of secular college life, I entered more deeply into the sacraments thanks to the ministries at St. Thomas Aquinas Newman Center on the campus of A&M-Kingsville. As my prayer life and relationship with Jesus grew, I began to hear a call to the priesthood. I continued my studies in biology and biochemistry while prudently discerning God’s will in my life. After graduation, I became the fourth man to enter seminary from St. Thomas, praise God.
