BRANDON MAXWELL EDMUND BAIN

I wanted to be a priest for as long as I can remember, since I was about 7 or 8.  I grew up attending Catholic schools and was very blessed to have been taught devotion to the Eucharist and the Blessed Mother.  In high school, I planned on entering the Jesuits, and I did this past fall of 2020 after graduating from Texas A&M.  However, I quickly understood that I was actually being called to diocesan ministry, serving the Church in a local context.  I am so excited to be here pursuing priesthood with a strong fraternity of brother seminarians.
