Beloved friends,

I come before you in humility, imploring your help. 

Over the past few years of my life, with the help of Jesus and our Blessed Mother, I discovered my desire to pursue God and serve His people as one of His priests. In the Fall of 2020, I entered priestly formation with the diocesan seminary as I initially felt a calling to serve the local Church in Texas as a diocesan priest. However, after entering diocesan seminary, I made an even deeper discovery of my desire to pursue God and the service of His Church through the gift of religious life, specifically with the Norbertine Fathers at St. Michael’s Abbey in California - a religious order that has been a part of my life as an Aggie and a FOCUS missionary. This spring, when my discernment was affirmed by the Norbertines, I withdrew from the diocesan seminary in order to enter religious life with the Norbertine Fathers on August 27th, 2021. 

That said, one of the stipulations for entering religious life is that one must be debt-free to enter. From my time in college, I accumulated much student debt that I have not finished paying off. With that in mind, in order to enter this upcoming fall, I am in great need of your financial support. I must pay off $25,000 of student loans before my entrance date on August 27th, 2021. I understand that I am asking a great deal of you, but I ask that you prayerfully consider contributing to my cause so that I may have the opportunity to enter religious life this upcoming fall. I want you to know that I am eternally grateful for your generosity. I am offering you in my prayers always and I want to remind you of Jesus’ promise, "Whoever gives to one of these little ones even a cup of cold water because he is a disciple, truly, I say to you, he shall not lose his reward" (Matthew 10:42). God "does not permit even one of His promises to fail" (Sirach 47:22). 

Thank you for your friendship, prayer, and support. I am very blessed and grateful. You are a dear part of my story. God-willing, I will take you and your family with me in prayer into the monastery on August 27th, 2021. May the Lord Jesus be with you always and may we always remain protected in the heart of our Beloved Mother.

The Norbertines are an order of Priests that live in community and offer their lives for the Church through prayer, liturgy, and service where there is need.
