MACC was a life-changing experience for me. It was a moment of grace for me and for the many who were part of it. I loved what I taught (Mexican American history, culture and spirituality) and those whom I taught. A great blessing was being part of a dedicated staff and community, especially being associated with Archbishop Flores, Fr. Virgil Elizondo and professors from Latin America. MACC was a grace-filled adventure and prepared me well to my years as a bishop.
