so was Brother Tom. Thus began
a unique relationship that would
challenge me to explore God’s call
in my life to service in the church.
There were many more conversa-
tions with Brother Tom, some in the
context of small faith communities
in the hall chapel and other one-
on-one exchanges about priesthood
and religious life. Eventually Brother
Tom invited me to the Marianist
community for Mass and dinner, and
My passage to being a religious
brother was first and foremost about
relationships. i am convinced that
the Holy spirit was at work helping
to bring individuals in and out of my
life who challenged me to think be-
yond myself and to see that i could
use my gifts and talents at the service
of the gospel.
