I first seriously started discerning the priesthood during my first year of college in Memphis. Through continual prayer, research and reception of the sacraments, I eventually came to the decision after my second year of college that seminary was the next step for me in my discernment. Throughout the past two years as a seminarian here at Holy Trinity, I’ve grown in so many ways that I never expected. I look forward to continuing to grow into the man God is calling me to be, fit for serving the people of God.
