Aaron has shown his interest of life through school, athletics and spirituality by applying himself as an Altar Server, Catechist Assistance and Sacristan. He loves football, basketball, and track and field. Aaron shows hard work in all that he does, as well as constantly looking to enhance his spiritual growth. He consistently thinks of others’ needs, is always thankful and ready to help family and friends at the drop of a hat. Aaron is a great kid because he understands that in life its not always about winning, but trying to do his best.

Q. Can you tell us about your involvement as an Alter server? What are your responsibilities as a catechist assistant and sacristan?

A. My involvement as an Altar Server started when I was 10 years old. I saw my big brother up there serving one Sunday, and I really paid attention to what he was doing and how he was doing it. I wanted to serve on the Altar as well, and my interest grew every day. I got into being a Catechist assistant when my mom asked me if I could help her. I said ‘yes’, and since that day I have helped her with her 6th grade Faith Formation class. I then became a Sacristan in training with 8th grade Sacristan’s for the upcoming year. I really enjoy being able to work with them and others.

Q. How many siblings do you have? What is the best part about being a brother?

A. I have five siblings in total. Two of them died when babies, and I have one older brother (Mikey) and two younger sisters (Genesis and Samantha). I feel like the best part of being a brother is being able to watch over my sisters, to help them and to protect them. I love to hang out with my older brother. He is discerning the Priesthood life (he is the best one ever) and is awesome to go out with and spend time together just the two of us.

Q. Why is it important to you to show good sportsmanship?

A. It is important to me to show good sportsmanship because if I don’t I will be showing a bad example for others and I think we have to be respectful and kind when playing sports. I like helping and complimenting others.

Q. What do you enjoy about St. John Vianney?

A. What I enjoy about St. John Vianney Catholic School is that I have higher expectations which I feel will push me to my limits. Another thing I enjoy are the great teachers,our Principal, and all the people that work there, and the fact that I have met amazing people and other students here in the past two years. I am able to express what I believe (my faith), which is priceless.

Q. What is your favorite football team?

A. My favorite football team are the New England Patriots.
