I have felt a call to the priesthood since I was very young. When I was a child, I truly enjoyed going to mass and I desired to be – and enjoyed acting as – an altar server. As I grew older, in the midst of the daily demands from school and various organizations, I fell away from regular prayer, but still I desired more and more to stand by the altar and serve God, and to receive him in the Eucharist. This eventually led me to seek advice from a priest who directed me here, to Holy Trinity Seminary.
