How many years have you served as a Catechist? 

9 years

What do you enjoy most about being a Catechist?

Teaching children about God and the beauty of the Catholic Church along with my wife and co-teacher Carmen.

Who is your favorite go-to saint? Why?

St. Thomas the Apostle-patron saint of Architects (my profession) and also because he doubted Jesus after the resurrection

St. Ignatius of Loyola-patron saint of retreats and because he had such a 180 degree conversion after reading about the lives of saints

A fun fact to know about you is...

I was once on Wheel of Fortune when I was engaged before we got married and was the big winner for the day. We used the prize money to buy furniture for the house we had just bought.
