Bradford, St. Francis of Assisi, Frisco

Hello, my name is Bradford Downs and I am the Youth Ministry Director for St. Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church.  I grew up in Southeast Texas where I went to Lamar University and received my degree in Corporate Communications.  While studying at Lamar I worked as the Junior High Youth Minister at a local parish and I absolutely loved it and felt called to continue ministry.  I knew I wanted to dive deeper into the faith so I decided to go to the University of Dallas.  I graduated with my Masters in Pastoral Ministry in May 2020 and I look forward to putting what I have learned into practice.  I have always felt a call to minister to the youth and I am glad to be given the opportunity to spread the Gospel at St. Marks.  I enjoy playing ultimate frisbee, watching football, playing the guitar, and hanging out with friends.  I look forward to serving the community at St. Marks and making disciples of Christ.
