Michael May was born in Mobile, Alabama to a devout Catholic mother and agnostic father. Michael was raised in Westchester county (White Plains and Elmsford) New York. It was in the fall of 2000 during a Cursillo retreat in San Diego, California when Michael decided to heed Jesus’s call to ‘repent and believe in the Gospel’. Michael’s Journey since then has been extraordinary, having had many encounters with the love and mercy of Jesus in his ordinary life. Michael, his wife, and their three children are all parishioners at St. Michael’s Church, in Rancho Bernardo California.
