Barista: Father Bill Inspired Me

Renegade Barista: received my First Communion from Father Bill, and was also an alter boy while he was at St. Pius. Father Bill was an example of what someone in ministry should strive to be. Unlike many today who will only fight the fights they can win, Father Bill fought the fights that needed fighting. As I study to go into ministry he is one of the people who have been my inspiration.

Question: Did anyone inspire you to go into your current career?
