I am a native of Haiti where I worked as an Immigration Inspector for many years. upon my arrival in the U.S., I earned my degree and lived in Connecticut for some 30 years. I was married for twenty-nine years, until my wife lost her battle to cancer in 2015. I am a devoted father of two grown children, a son and a daughter. I have always been active in the Church serving as an altar server, youth minister, prayer group leader, liturgical minister, Eucharistic minister and charismatic group leader. I also served on my Parish finance council, advisory council, and as a trustee. After the death of my wife, just as the Risen Christ petitioned Peter for a second time to care for His sheep; He came back to me. When my Pastor invited me to consider a priestly vocation, I felt I couldn't delay any longer. Two months after I met with the Vocations Director for the Diocese of Bridgeport, I resigned my job of 26 years to follow the will of God. PSJS has provided a warm welcome and the camaraderie of brotherhood. I pray that God will bless me and my brother seminarians with the grace needed to be the Lord's voice for the New Evangelization Initiative of the Catholic Church.
