I first started thinking about the priesthood at a very young age, but I did not pay much attention to it.  I felt again the call to the priesthood in high school on a Steubenville Lone Star retreat while in Adoration the first night.  After that, priesthood was always on my mind.  After high school, I discerned religious life for a year and later worked for a parish in Sugar Land, Texas as a high school and adult ministry intern.  After a year of working, I heard God’s call to take the next step.
