I grew up in a very Catholic family in Honduras with a very devout grandmother who introduced me to the beauty of our faith. From a very young age I always wanted to be a priest. At the age of fourteen I began to seriously think about my faith and what my calling in life was. Through prayer, discernment, serving and volunteering in the church, I discovered that God was calling me to follow and serve Him in a deeper way. My dream is to become a holy priest to the service of the people of God, like the ones who have inspired me in my journey.

Fun Fact
