I’m a 1st year missionary from Ireland!
What brought you to Christ in the City?
I was first brought to Christ in the City through my desire to go out in the world and serve God, following whatever path he decided for me to take. As a child I was blessed with the opportunity to work in soup kitchens and homeless shelters. My desire to help those in need has only grown stronger and stronger as the years have gone by. God has guided my every step. This year was a year filled with prayer and discerning. I came into contact with some Fathers from the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal. I spoke about my desires, and they suggested Christ in the City. God blessed me with this opportunity, and continues to guide me through my life.
What are you looking forward to?
I cannot wait to experience whatever may be waiting for me over in America, and the work I will be doing over there. I have lived in Ireland my entire life, and while I have left the country a number of times, Ireland has always been my old familiar. To go over to a completely new environment and live there for a whole year is, yes daunting, but also incomprehensibly exciting. The most exciting part perhaps has been all of this has come into fruition through prayer. I finally have the opportunity to help those in need and follow Gods plan. This past year God has worked wonders in my life, and this opportunity I have been blessed is most certainly one of them.
A bit about me
I hail from Boyle, County Roscommon, a region in the proud nation of Ireland. As the proud Irishman that I am, I find joy in the beauty of nature, which I’m blessed to be surrounded by. I love good walks and hikes through the wilderness, where God can be found in even the smallest of things.
I am extremely artistic, enjoying jamming on the guitar to the best of my ability, and doodling and sketching any manner of drawings on any unfortunate piece of paper that enters my hands.
In times of silence I find comfort in prayer. God has been with me my entire life, and has guided me in my every step. I look forward to walk the path that he has molded for me.
