"I was born and raised in beautiful Iloilo City, Philippines
until I was just about eleven years old, when we moved to the United States.
The Catholic culture and the faith of my family has really shaped who I am,
and also all the passionate people whom I have been blessed to accompany me as I encounter the face of Christ in the truth, beauty, and goodness in God's creation,
in nature and in all peoples, places, and cultures."
"This relationship with Jesus has come to fruition in my vocation as a priest.
Recently ordained on November 15, 2014,
the priesthood was something that I would not have chosen for myself,
but it has been the greatest thing that has ever happened in my life.
My heart is full of love, joy, and peace.
It is the great adventure that my heart has been longing for and was made for."
"I am truly grateful to be part of the family that is Holy Trinity.
I am humbled to have been called to love you, my family, with all of my heart, soul, and strength.
For our God has called me to love you, and to love Him, through you and with you.
Let me know how I may love and serve you."
