COLORADO SPRINGS. Living out the Catholic faith means working to make the world a better place. That goal aligned perfectly with the Future City competition, which one St. Mary’s High School student participated in all three years of middle school. Not only did the competition teach Alex Baburnic, now a sophomore at St. Mary’s, to look for physical ways to change the world, but it gave him the confidence that he could succeed in doing just that.

My Summer Assignment on the Eastern Plains
September 16, 2017  |  By BRANDON ALLEN
COLORADO SPRINGS. Submitting to and falling in love with God’s will was very gradual for me. I’ll never forget the first time I could envision myself as a priest celebrating Mass, giving homilies, and hearing confessions — it was exciting! As I pursued the seminary, I remember asking the Lord, “If it’s your will, open the doors,” and so far, he has. I am about to begin my third seminary year at St. Gregory the Great in Seward, Nebraska studying philosophy, having spent most of the summer at the parishes on the Eastern Plains of Colorado. I served four weeks in Cheyenne Wells and Kit Carson with Father Jason Keas, and four weeks in Burlington and Stratton with Father Carlos Gallardo.
