William was raised a Presbyterian with deep roots in that heritage. After school he became a secular humanist. Finally, in his forty’s, he realized he needed God in his life. With no Presbyterian congregation in his town, he began to attend the local Reformed Church. Soon after, he discovered Apologia Pro Vita Sua, by Blessed John Henry Newman. He felt called to be Catholic but thought he should bloom where he was planted. It took seven years, but after a special intervention of the Blessed Virgin Mary, he realized the he must enter into full-communion with the Catholic Church.
