My name is Xavier Villarreal and I am one of the missionaries from RCMC class of '19-20. Growing up in a Catholic household, I always understood the fact that we as Catholics are called to spread Christ's words to everyone. This reality finally dawned upon me when I began my 9th Grade year at the Highlands School. There I was able to experience my first mission trip with ECyD in Holy week and the summer, I was able to lead Conquest retreats and summer camps, but most importantly, I was guided and inspired by other Regnum Christi members by their actions. By the end of my Senior year at THS, I had met many different people through my school with amazing experiences which in the end convinced me I simply had to do a mission year. My school's formation and the connections I made there truly inspired me to want to help other RC communities and give up a year and a spot in Texas A&M. I am really excited for this upcoming year and hopefully (through your prayers and donations) I will be able to impact someone's life the way the people in my school impacted me.
