Vocation Story

It has been a long journey, but I am happy to give an opportunity to keep discerning what God wants for my life. At the beginning I felt like empty on the inside even though I was doing things that I liked, but at the same time I didn’t feel like that was, what I was meant to be. Through the years God has put me in different places in order to keep growing as an individual and definitely to prepare me for the beginning of this experience. I am open to the learning and shaping as God will let me know where to my future leads is at his hands. Thanks!

Priest Aspirations

To help being an instrument to help individuals unite with his creator.

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

Whenever I have seen the improvement in myself by doing an introspection and seeing how I have grown has been very fulfilling, but at the same time I am finding out there are other things that I now need to take into consideration. This is a process in order to try to become holier.

Anything Else

I am excited to be here and looking forward to the new experience God willing
