Michael Welker: To Catholicism from Zen Buddhism via Protestantism

November 7, 1997 No Comments

Reared in Rockville, Maryland, Michael went to California to work for five years after high school, where he found an interest in Christianity, converting from Zen Buddhism. After moving to Florida, he was drawn to the Catholic faith, particularly through two very influential people: a Catholic gentleman he met at work who mentored him that he and his wife prayed a Rosary for Michael’s conversion every day for a year. Also a Catholic youth minister who shared the riches of the Catholic faith with Michael.
