Where I serve

The Lord has sent me to serve at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) in Worcester, Massachusetts!


My Story

I was baptized into the Catholic Church April 16th, 2022. I grew up with a catholic father and a protestant mother. I was given the offer to get baptized at 13 but for me it was only a choice between parents and I did not understand what I was passing up. I spent my life always longing for something, seeking to feel this void within my heart. My heart was like this well that I continued to pour whatever I could find into, and whatever I put into the well of my heart, it would always run dry. During the summer of 2021 was when I took a real good look at my life and where it was headed. It was then that God showed me what I had been seeking this whole time, and where I could find it. I understand that when I filled the well of my heart with love, it would remain full just a little bit longer than everything else. So I knew that it was love that I was seeking. I understand that I could find love in a perfect marriage, and I understood that to be one where God is at the center of the marriage. So, I had to center my life around Christ. In doing so I began RCIA, was baptized, and it was then that the well of my heart began to overflow with the love of the Holy Spirit, and the love I had been seeking my whole life, I had finally found. Ever since I gave the Lord my first yes, I have been saying yes to his call ever since!
