February 13, 2016 Catholic Men's Conference in San Antonio article in Today's Catholic

Father Hunt spoke about A Catholic Man in a Modern World.

Father Hunt grew up in Bracketville near the Mexican border, working on a ranch. 

Wanting to help people see, he worked towards becoming an optometrist.

But God drew him towards the possibility of religious life.

He lived as a missionary for seven years in Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, Rome, and the Philippines.

Now a priest, he considers the authority to forgive sins as the greatest grace of his vocation, and his favorite prayer is the Chaplet of Divine Mercy.

Father Hunt is widely known as “The Biker Priest.”

He says, “I grew up as a cowboy, but I also like to ride the ‘steel horse.’”

He currently serves as pastor of St. Joseph Church in Del Rio.
