To Whom It May Concern,
I am a practicing Catholic man with an enormous amount of talent. God has blessed me throughout the years with the abilities to sacrifice and put others first, flourish in management of others, and overcome some of the hardest tribulations in life by capitalizing on the opportunities He has presented to me to practice mercy, patience, and forgiveness.
Though I have spent most of my time after earning an undergraduate degree from the Benedictines at Belmont Abbey College in the world of business, there is no denying that the Lord has been calling me to do something great in the Church. With every Mass I attend and Sacrament I receive, the calling seems to turn into a craving to be a steward of His will – in not just my life, but others as well. I am currently earning my MBA from the Franciscans at Saint Bonaventure University, and hope to apply what I learn to whatever it may be I pursue next. From account management to brand design, I have explored the ins and outs of business principles in hopes of one day being able to lead other Christians to be as effective and efficient in their work as well as their personal lives.
I write this because I see that organizations like yours are primed to make a true difference in the culture surrounding us, and I think it would benefit both sides for us to have a conversation as to whether or not I could be a contribution to the cause. It is my prayer that the message heard in these avenues can be brought to the attention of the rest of the world – in a format that they find Christ’s love present in, as welcoming as we see Him in the Eucharist.
The world clearly needs more laypeople to be a source of light, and it is my belief that I could and should be doing my part as a facet of such a cause. I am willing to relocate for the right project, and would hope to make a transition into a new role by the end of 2018.
I look forward to hearing from you all. No matter the course of action, may His will always be done.
