Postulant Paula Gonzalez
Albuquerque, NM
Candidate for Holy Orders
Rising Sun Christian Community
Having loved the Holy Father and His Son Jesus Christ since a young age, I didn’t know what it meant to truly allow Jesus to be Lord of my life until I was baptized in His name at 31 years of age. Having walked with Him these last two decades has allowed me to grow spiritually and develop in ways that I could never have imagined for myself. I am currently in formation to become a Deacon and hope to be ordained in early 2018. My career goal is to be a Chaplain in order to provide spiritual comfort and guidance to hospital/hospice patients and their caregivers. Should the Lord will that I provide spiritual guidance to women in prison, I will gladly go there as well.
