Faith that is Persistent:

In 2008, I was given my first local mission assignment.  My previous assignments were limited to formational and institutional responsibilities. I was dealing with the needs of my religious congregation and its relationship with the dioceses that we served, as well as other educational and government institutions related to our youth ministries. It was a new environment that I was called to respond. It was also a challenging assignment. 

I was assigned to help the Diocese of Dumaguete create a
viable campus youth ministry among the public high schools.
