I was born in Mexico but immigrated to the United States in 2004.  I am the oldest of four children and my entire family was raised Catholic.  My desire to pursue the priesthood began when I was 12 years old serving as an altar boy at my local parish.  During junior year of high school, I visited Holy Trinity Seminary to learn more about the process of becoming a priest, which I profoundly enjoyed.  The following year I began the application process and was admitted to Holy Trinity Seminary.
