How did you hear your calling to become a deacon? Seeing the need in the community and through Father John Connell for his service to the parish

What ministries are you currently involved in? Acolyte, RCIA program 

Who have been the biggest influences in your diaconate formation? The deacons who are in formation are an example of what diaconal service is, especially Deacon Marcelino Luna and Deacon Marcelino Vázquez. They are a great support and example for myself when I have had the need to talk about my fears and how to be better every day.
