My name is J Concepcion Serrato Gomez, I was born in Huetamo Michoacan, Mexico, on December 8, 1989. I’m the youngest of nine siblings. I was born of Fortino Serrato and Evarista Gomez. I attended public school while I lived in Mexico. At the age of fifteen, I moved to the United States. I attended Navasota High School my freshman year. A year later, I transferred to Waller High School. While I attended Waller High School, I participated in sports and other activities. Once I graduated from High School, I moved to New Jersey with one of my siblings. A year later, I decided to return to Texas. Upon my return from New Jersey, I became involved with the Church. While I attended St. John of the Cross, which became my home parish, I became Eucharistic minister. I joined the Spanish choir and became the leader of a group of young adults. Through prayer and with the support of the pastor, Fr. Hai Dang, I discovered that God was calling me to the priesthood. Within a year, I was accepted as a seminarian by the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston.
