I am the second youngest of four children raised in a Catholic family. I have many memories of serving Mass at St Mary’s. I attended St Mary, St Paul and St John’s College where the faith of my parents was fostered and grew. I strayed a little in university but my wife’s strong faith brought me back. My aha moment came when I read Rediscover Catholicism by Matthew Kelly. I believe I put my faith into action every time I make a home visit to help one of our neighbours in need as a member of the St Vincent de Paul Society.
