I believe that through your prayers I will sustain and will be a good priest. Your prayers are my strength and your support, my encouragement to live a life of holiness and of continual service to others.'

He went on to say, 'Working together with the parishioners through the various ministries in Holy Trinity, allowed me to grow in faith and sharpened my skill in connecting to people. Continue to pray for me that I will be a model to others specifically in my spiritual life.'
