I grew up in San Marcos. Being from a Baptist family, I never thought I would be in a Catholic seminary studying to become a priest. However, God has a great sense of humor. I found the faith in college at Texas State when a group of friends and I decided to find the truth of Christianity while trying to disprove the Catholic Church’s claims of One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church. I was proven wrong in my presupposition of the Catholic Church. Once I converted in 2020, I began to discern the call to priesthood. Three years later, I am now grateful for the Church and am discerning how to best give my life to God.
