I’m so glad to be in LA experiencing new moments with great people. LA has some similarities to San Antonio so I feel very comfortable here. The first two days have been full of warmth, hospitality, friendship, understanding, and food! Occasionally it takes some time to develop a strong relationship with others; however, the group here has bonded so quickly. Before we even met each other, we had something that connected us together: Mary. Mary has and will continue to be interwoven into our lives.
I adore the Marianists, but I fully realized why when we went to the West Hills Marianist Community. The Marianists fully exude the charisms. I spoke to 4 Marianists and learned so much. I had such a wonderful time and wished I could have spent more time hearing their words of wisdom. It has been so wonderful so far and I can’t wait for the next couple of days!
