Oscar Herrera – Former Jehovah’s Witness
Oscar Herrera was baptized Catholic, but by the time he was 5 years old, his family had become Jehovah’s Witnesses. That community became everything to him, and by age 9, he was already considering becoming an elder. However, in his teenage years, when he and his girlfriend had a child out of wedlock, things started to fall apart, and he became an agnostic for a few years. Despite those faithless years for Oscar, his wife remained Catholic, and even though he at first wanted absolutely nothing to do with the Church, a series of events, including a Eucharistic experience on a marriage retreat, caused him to consider coming back to the faith into which he had originally been baptized.
