BENNETT THOMAS BODIN

My call to priesthood really came to me in between my junior and senior years of high school. I have been an altar server since fourth grade, but the real possibility of becoming a priest wasn’t present at the time. While continuing to serve, I was also involved in other ministry organizations where I experienced the Lord more physically in adoration. Since then, I began to truly form a prayer life where the Lord planted the seeds of priesthood into my soul. From that moment on, I have felt that ever present call to serve God’s people in the particular way that the priesthood offers.
