I began to feel a call to the priesthood while I was going through RCIA. I fell in love with what the priest does. He gets to devote his entire life to sharing the love of Jesus that he himself has experienced. He gets to live extremely close to Jesus, holding him in his hands during the Mass. The more I thought about it, the more I wanted to consider the priesthood. So, after being confirmed and going on a year of mission with NET Ministries, I decided to come here to Holy Trinity Seminary to say yes to the Lord.
