Aristotle Quan


Hello my name is Aristotle Quan. I am the currently seminarian that comes from St. Cecilia. I was born and raised in Orange County. I grew up in Tustin, but I went to school in Irvine. My desire to be a priest started after I came back from a trip to Jerusalem in 2008. I have been in seminary formation for about six years now. I got my bachelor’s degree in philosophy at Mount Angel Oregon. I completed two years of graduate studies in St. Patrick’s seminary in Menlo Park. The last 2014-15 year, I was at St. Timothy’s Parish in Laguna Niguel for an internship. This 2015-16 year I am at St. Irenaeus in Cypress for another internship year. Please keep me in your prayers and I keep you in mine. God bless.
