What kinds of things are you up to in your Echo parish?
I will be supporting the liturgical life of the parish by helping prepare for Sunday Masses, the celebration of the sacraments, and most other liturgical functions.

What attracted you to Echo and helped you decide to join the program?
I was most drawn to Echo for its incarnational view of Theology. I have a special love for theological study, but only insofar as it motivates me to love and serve. Meeting Echo students and alumni helped me decide to join, as it assured me that Echo accommodates many personalities, gifts, and passions. There is no quintessential Echo student, just as there is no standard Church member or saint.
