I first felt that I was being called to the priesthood when I was a student at Texas A&M University.  I had always been involved in church growing up and had been an altar server and gone to youth group but had always been dismissive towards the idea of the priesthood. However, as a sophomore in college I started to think about what I really wanted my life to become, and this is when my heart was drawn to the priesthood.  With God’s help I was able to say yes to that call and enter the seminary.
