Parent and Child


In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"From the time I was an infant, my family has been immersed in the Catholic Church and its faith. Our Church, St. Mary’s, always left me in awe with the sun shining through the stained glass windows and the larger than life statues of religious pioneers smiling down upon me. I was baptized, confirmed, and attended Sunday school at St. Mary’s and I believe that this strongly molded me into the person I am today. By also attending a Catholic school for eleven years, I feel as though this helped build a strong relationship with my Church and my family because they were always involved. My family was the biggest influence on me, and my mother and grand-mother especially guided me in my faith."
