My call to the priesthood of Jesus Christ begins with the most important function of the priest: the Mass and the encounter with the Crucified Christ in the Eucharist.  While a student at Father Ryan High School, I began to attend daily Mass before school and Adoration during the week.  This encounter, along with developing a personal relationship with the chaplain and other solidly Catholic peers, enabled me to hear the whisper of God.  After a year at the Pontifical College Josephinum in Columbus, Ohio, I and other Nashvillians were transferred to Holy Trinity.  It is an honor and a blessing to be here.
