“The experience of St. Therese for me was very grounding. I felt I was able to "put the roots deep" and to drink from the richness that is the life of the Church… I fell in love with Love… I know that God loves me, and I've fallen in love with him… The three formative years have changed me permanently… I'm ever grateful for my experience at St. Therese. The Catholic formation I received has really changed the way I interact with my friends, my family, myself, how I go about my work, my prayer, everything. Not much looks different, it's all the same things, but it's all new. It's as if through this experience Christ has taken my life and he says to me in a very personal way: "Behold, I make all things new." (Rev. 21:5) It is love that makes all things new for me.” - Christian Bekolay, 2018-2021
