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 the grace of deeper self-confidence, conviction, and strength in the Lord, for better living into the many gifts God has given me; to grow in trust, freedom, joy…to be a living source of grace, humility, and mercy in the service of the Lord and others.

May your prayers for me echo back in my prayers for you, that we all may be one in God’s love, grace, and peace.
