I was blessed to be born into a Catholic family and attend Catholic school from Pre-K through high school. When I went to Texas A&M, I attended a few retreats and met faithful friends that helped me believe that God loves me more than I could ever imagine. When I believed this good news, my life was changed! After a few years of praying and going to Mass daily, I still desired something more – and I thought it may be a call to priesthood. I connected with my vocation director and after a year of seriously discerning, I entered seminary.
