Dear Sacred Family,
I am excited to announce that we will be hosting a soon-to-be seminarian, Dan LaCroix, from January through August. He is graduating from Michigan Tech this December and plans on entering seminary this coming fall. In the meantime, he will be working at an internship in Adrian but living here and gaining parish experience. It will be a blessing to have him with us the next eight months. He has included a biography below.
In addition, I have recently started a priesthood discernment group with students from Hillsdale College. Please be praying for Daniel, for this group, and for anyone who God is calling to either the priesthood or consecrated life.
My name is Dan LaCroix. I have two sisters, one older (Cecilia) and one younger (Rebecca). I am from Ypsilanti, and my family goes to Christ the King. I went to Catholic schools from kindergarten through high school, which was a real blessing. I just graduated this weekend from Michigan Tech with a dual degree in mechanical engineering and materials science and engineering. I will be using these degrees this spring working as an intern at Adrian Steel.
I enjoy running and biking, and exploring the beautiful Keweenaw Peninsula (where Michigan Tech is located). Amongst other more useful talents, I can juggle and ride a unicycle, although not at the same time yet.
While at Michigan Tech I was very involved with the student parish there, St. Albert the Great. I’ve lived and worked at the parish the last few years, working with several other students to maintain and clean the parish. I spent the summer of 2017 as a Totus Tuus missionary in the Upper Peninsula, traveling from parish to parish leading a catechetical day camp for kids of all ages. I’m looking forward to living at Sacred Heart and getting involved with the parish.
