I eventually decided to attend a parish where I could be with more Latinos and work in any possible way God allowed me.

Since then, I have become involved with both the Archdiocese and with the parish as a lector, and I help plan many programs and retreats sponsored by the Office of Multicultural Ministry, as well as serving as a teacher for Spanish-speaking catechists.

I pray for people in our own communities to be ready to embrace us all and to be witnesses to people that do not go to church. I hope that "God will reign and we'll walk with each other as sisters and brothers united in love."
