How a Man's Journey to Become a Catholic Priest Began with 2 Mormon Missionaries

“I promise you, you will never see it with a Mormon and a Catholic the way this has unfolded,” former missionary Andrew Blackwell said.

Pat Broussard answered a knock at his door in 2002 to find two Mormon missionaries standing there. What happened next surprised his visitors.

“I looked at them and thought: ‘You boys look hungry. Come on in. I’m going to feed you,’” Broussard said. “There was something about them that said, 'Let them in; talk to them.'”
