Diocese of Dallas

Class: Pre-Theology II

Diocese: Dallas

Hometown: Allen, TX

Home Parish: St. Jude, Allen


I come from a family of five. Growing up, I had the opportunity to live in nine states. While I was living in California, I met my high school youth minister, whose passionate witness to Christ in the Eucharist sparked my faith journey within the Church. From there, the Lord led me to become a missionary at the Pines Catholic Camp, discern a religious order, and serve teens as a youth minister at St. Jude in Allen. I now have the pleasure of giving the Lord my “Yes” and discerning a priestly vocation for the Diocese of Dallas.
