My journey began the summer before my junior year of high school.  Although I was baptized Catholic, I grew up attending a Baptist church with family.  Throughout high school, I began searching for that place that God was calling me, and that led me to the Catholic Church.  I first had thoughts of the priesthood in high school, but ultimately decided to study in college to mature in my faith. It was during my senior year at Benedictine College that I finally decided to answer the stirrings that I had felt in my heart and enter the seminary.
