I was born in Monterrey, Mexico, and I ended up in Austin because that’s where I went to college.
I first began thinking about the priesthood when I made my first communion - I was about six years old. However, since I really wanted to get married, I ignored the call for a long time until I finally entered seminary upon graduating from the University of Texas in 2014.
If there’s anything I’ve learned through my discernment, it’s that there’s is nothing more fulfilling and exhilarating than following the Lord’s will. We all have our plans… but His plans are always better. I can’t wait to serve God’s people as a priest.
