Vocation Story

I grew in my appreciation for my faith after college when health issues set in with Crohn’s Disease and other autoimmune illnesses. God brought me through many trials of suffering and a journey of intense self-discovery, receiving beautiful gifts from other Christian and non-Christian religious traditions before coming back full circle to the perfection of love and beauty in my Catholic faith. To discover who I truly am and to help others discover who they truly are in the love of Jesus Christ, to bring us all to share in the love of the twin hearts of Jesus and Mary, what could be better than that.

Priest Aspirations

Being a heart for others. Sharing in the hearts of my parishioners and community, and illuminating the beauty of our Faith.

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

Helping at Our Lady of the Angels Mission on Chicago’s West Side. As light is being shed on systemic racism in our country, what beautiful, powerful, and inspired work the Franciscan Sisters of The Eucharist are doing to support and lift that community.

How can Mundelein's donors and community pray for you?

Please pray for my heart, that I would always and ever-more put it at the service of others in Jesus and Mary. You may join me in my prayer for this year to trust and to ask Jesus “Lord, teach me to serve.”
Thank you for all that you do.
