|Date of Ordination:||February 13, 1999|
My journey to the diaconate started over forty years ago when I felt a need to become closer to God. At that time, I converted to Catholicism to join my family in the Catholic faith. Some years later during my devotion to the Blessed Mother, I was asked if I would be interested in the diaconate. After much contemplation with my wife, I decided this opportunity would be the next step in my journey of becoming closer to God. Ever since my ordination, I felt I made the right decision. This ministry has not only drawn me closer to God but has allowed me to serve others by enriching and strengthening all the works of service performed by the Church.
