First of all, I thank God for calling me to priestly vocation and giving me an opportunity to be a part of Juan Diego House community. Last two years have been such a blessing in my life and I am grateful for the all the prayers and support that I have received from people. I truly believe that people's prayers have helped me through my formation at Juan Diego House and to help me graduate from California State University Dominguez Hills.

Thank you to the Archdiocese for all the support I have received at Juan Diego House. My time in the community has been a big influence in my formation. Everyone's prayers over the last two years have been important in the development of my vocation.
