What has been your favorite/most memorable story of your time at Mundelein thus far?

I have had the privilege of being assigned to several places to learn about the priesthood, but I also had the unique opportunity to teach junior high religion at Bishop McNamara Catholic School in Kankakee, IL. It was the most blessed experience of my time in seminary and absolutely changed my life. I enjoyed learning about the life of a Catholic School, its strengths and weaknesses, working with an excellent group of educators, and building relationships that endure with the community there. It was a blessed time!
