What called you to the Core Team? I spent much of my early adult life as an "anti-catholic", desperately trying to "win souls for Christ". When I saw the light (thanks, especially to Our Lady), I felt that it was the least I could do to use my gifts and show our youth how lucky they are to have the Catholic faith. Having been a High School teacher, as well as youth volunteer and coach, I feel that I relate well enough to today's youth to assist them in finding their way through a tricky, sometimes, murky time in their faith development.
