Transformation Tuesday: Justin’s Testimony


I participated in the Fragua Course not once, but twice. I was a hard one to get a hold of. Having been brought up Catholic, I thought I knew everything that there was to know about God and how I should be living my life. But the real thing that was lacking was a true relationship with Him. I came to the Fragua Course the first time, but didn’t go on the retreat or really connect with the community. A couple years later, at a point where I really needed to make some changes in my life, I came back to the Fragua Course for the second time. And on the Fragua Retreat, I had a true and deep encounter with Jesus. This encounter changed everything!
A year later, after growing closer to God and becoming a part a of the Newman Center community, I was presented with the opportunity to give a year of my life in volunteer work. I agreed to this and have been here since September helping bring others closer to Christ and helping out with all of the other needs the Newman Center has. When I look back at my sophomore year of college when I first came to the Fragua Course, I would have never imagined that I would be where I am today helping in Jesus’s mission of the New Evangelization!
