Hometown: Tyler, Texas
Home Parish: Our Lady of Guadalupe
When I was about 12 years old, my family began to attend Mass more often, and we slowly began to get more involved in our Parish. I immediately knew that I wanted to altar serve, so I joined the training sessions and prepared myself to serve in Mass. Since then, I fell in love with the Mass and the idea of becoming a priest began to go through my mind. Upon graduating high school, I decided to enroll at Tyler Junior College and study psychology because I was not ready to commit to priestly formation. After finishing a year at TJC, I now find myself joyfully entering priestly formation at Holy Trinity Seminary.
