Hi! My name is Erich Wallace. I’m 31 years old and from a small city in the northwoods of Wisconsin called Merrill (Go Bluejays!). I graduated from UW-Madison in 2012 with a degree in history and bounced around jobs for a while before settling in teaching Spanish, aiding in the 4K, and being the youth minister at St. Francis Xavier school and parish in Merrill. I left there in 2019 to go discern the priesthood. I did a one year discernment program in La Crosse before entering seminary briefly where God made it clear I was not called to be a priest. I have since moved back to Merrill and started my own business doing new construction and remodeling! I enjoy sports, languages, movies and reading, the outdoors, laughing, sarcasm, and engaging in and learning more about my Catholic faith!
I’ve decided to become a missionary with Biking for Babies because I believe it is an organization that is putting faith into action to renew the culture of life by educating people, supporting pregnancy resource centers who are providing help to mothers and families in need, and by uniquely using the physical suffering that comes through cycling to offer up for women in crisis pregnancies and raise awareness for the pro-life cause.
