Philippe Dubourdieu

My family and I moved to the United States when I was a young boy.  In America, we were exposed to people actively living out the Catholic Faith.  We were able to join a thriving parish and embrace the Faith, too.  I made my First Holy Communion in 2nd grade and started altar serving immediately.  In those days, I said that I wanted to be a priest so that I could serve at the altar.  Today, I move forward in my priestly formation so that I can help in the Church’s mission to tell the world of God’s great love for us.
