|Fr. Jewel Aytona, CPM grew up in Southern California in a city called Rancho Cucamonga. In between playing basketball and break-dancing, he and his family would faithfully attend Sunday Mass, pray the family Rosary and frequent Eucharistic Adoration. As he began to be involved with Youth Ministry, he discovered that God had given him a gift to preach and teach the Faith to others. He was drawn to this apostolate, and felt a call from the Lord to discern the priesthood to use the gifts God had given him and to devote his life to prayer.Fr. Aytona was assigned to the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help as a newly ordained priest. He was ordained on June 4th, 2011 with the Congregation of the Fathers of Mercy in Auburn, Kentucky.|
