What have you enjoyed most about your Echo experience?
I love learning from so many faithful professors, reading the great works of the Catholic tradition, and being challenged to apply it all to the formation of those I encounter in parish life. Learning, praying, and living alongside my community members is the greatest gift, they challenge me to grow in holiness and joy everyday.
