Lalo Barragan, who will be starting Third Year Theology at Mundelein Seminary later this month, became a United States citizen yesterday at a ceremony in Chicago. Born in Michoacán, Mexico, he is the second oldest of nine. In 1991, he and his family came to the United States, and settled in Cowiche. From 1991 through 2004, he worked in several different jobs. While serving at St. Juan Diego Parish, many people motivated him to go into the seminary. He entered formation in 2004, and the next year began college studies at Mount Angel Seminary in Oregon, where he graduated in 2010. Lalo just finished his Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. He returns to Mundelein, in Chicago, in a week or so. Congratulations, Lalo!
