What was your background before you joined the CC?
I worked as and Industrial Engineer, Computer Consultant and Bartender. The year prior to my joining the CCs I was involved in youth ministry with Rejoice! Ministries in northern California.
What led you to join this community?
After discerning that God could be calling me to the priesthood, I visited the CCs and immediately felt "at home". The seminarians and priests that I met were very welcoming. Most of the men I spoke with attributed their vocation in some way to Our Blessed Mother which was important to me since it was through her intercession that I came to practice my faith.
What kind of ministry are you doing now?
I am currently one of the university chaplains at Newman Center at Wayne State University in Detroit.
