REYES HERIBERTO PALOMARES SOLIS
I was born in Mexico and moved to the United States in 2004. The oldest of four children, I was raised as a Catholic in Greenville, South Carolina, and attended Mass regularly. My vocation story began when I was 12 years old and began serving as an altar boy. During high school I took a trip to Holy Trinity Seminary, which I enjoyed. I applied soon after my trip and entered seminary after high school.

“That’s when this feeling came over me like a warm blanket. I knew, somehow, that I had to stay alive. Somehow, I had to keep breathing, even though there was no reason to hope.” – Chuck Nolan in Cast Away
I always wanted to be a standup comedian.
