    I worked with Fr. Denis Monaghan for many years as a volunteer for his English Mass at the Myeongdong Cathedral in South Korea.

    I got deported from South Korea and am now in Canada.
    I got his permission to talk with the concerned individual (and I am trying to find that person on your site) to publish a faith story for my experiences in South Korea.

    I want to really share one or even more on your site, so I can inspire others out there.

    Can you help me with this project?

    I am sincere in wanting to share my experiences and how I became a lay convert during those hard years in South Korea.

    I'll wait for your response to my email.
