DANIEL ALEJANDRO SANCHEZ

My vocation story begins at my parents’ Anniversary Mass, at the age of 13, where I witnessed the loving perseverance of a priest who, despite his physical pain, continued to serve his parish. His suffering ignited an inexplicable joy in me that compelled me to live a life of service and sacrificial love for the people of God. Daily prayer, helping the poor, attending my youth group community, and reading about the lives of the saints were small parts of my day that remarkably impacted my life and ignited the spark to pursue a priestly vocation. I trust God has plans to prosper me at Holy Trinity Seminary!
