Father Christopher, a Maronite Catholic Priest, was doing the Lord's work long before he entered the priesthood. As a dentist during the AIDS epidemic, Father Christopher treated AIDS patients when most other dentists shunned them. After being introduced to the Maronite Church through work he was doing with the poor and vulnerable in Austin where he practiced, he became drawn to the Maronite Rite. Over time, one of the priests at the church encouraged him to become a priest. He felt like God was calling him into the priesthood, and he is now the Chief Mission Officer at Providence Newberg Medical Center in Newberg, Ore. Edit credit: Alison Jacques
