My parents used to dress me up as a priest when I was a baby, so I have been thinking about the priesthood for a long time. Throughout my middle and high school years, my relationship with the Lord grew in youth group, various retreats and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. It was our Mother Mary who gave me the clarity I needed to enter seminary. I have felt very blessed in my first three years at Holy Trinity. God willing, I look forward to giving my whole self to my future sheep after having received so much in formation.
