My vocation was born after reading a book about the Church in high school.  During my last semester, I noticed I was more interested in the Church than high school, so I decided to enter seminary.  I was going to apply in Juarez, but I received a call from the vocations director in El Paso, and he convinced me to enter seminary through the Diocese of El Paso.  After a year of introductory seminary in El Paso, I was sent here to Holy Trinity Seminary to fulfill my philosophy requirements.
