Instructor of Formation - THS Boys' Middle School
Hi, I'm Br. Joaquin Sainz from Puebla, Mexico. A former Sportscaster, beginning my 6th year as Legionary. I joined the Legion in 2008 (at 24) and after two years in Ireland, one in Spain and two more in Italy I've been assigned to work in Dallas to share the joy of encountering Christ. I love soccer and everything about soccer, of course I'm more than a Real Madrid, I like Spanish food and music.
Br. Jaime Cortes, LC
Instructor of Formation - THS Boys' High School
I'm Br. Jaime Cortes from Mexico. I'm a 29 years old and I'm starting my 6th year of my priestly formation. I join the seminary after I graduated from college when I felt the desire to do something great with my life. I studied Economics at the University of Monterrey (UDEM). Since I join the seminary I've been the first three years in Cheshire CT, doing my novitiate and the humanities studies; then I went to Rome for two years to study the philosophy. Now I work at The Highlands School in Dallas Texas as Instructor of formation with high school boys and my mission is to be there for them, help them in their formation but above all help them to growth in their friendship with Christ so He becomes the center our their lives.
I am John Woodon from The Highlands School in Irving Texas! It has been my pleasure to be a part of conquest since my freshman year in high school, leading the way to current day, where i assist in the maintenence, upkeep, and smooth running of conquest activities! As i have just graduated The Highlands, i will be spending a year deserning my path in life which will provide me a unique opportunity to spend a year with the boys and young men in Conquest! I look forward to the coming year, and those to come!

Fr. Michael Picard, LC
Regional Youth Director
I Was born in Lake Charles, Louisiana and joined the Legion in year 2000. I Did my first 2 years of Novitiate in Cornwall, Canada which is were I later returned upon being ordained a Deacon in Rome. I was ordained on the Feast Day of Our Lady Guadalupe 2011. After spending these last 2 years in Canada, I now arrive here to Dallas as regional youth director. I'm always seeking new adventures. I know the only way to face our fears and weakness is to face them; there I was on the top of 20ft waterfall, though scared of heights making the jump. We gotta challenge ourselves and rise up to new heights in our lives. I look forward to my work here in Dallas and getting to know so many new people to bring them closer to Christ.
