I’ve always been around the faith with my mom taking me to daily Mass with her for as long as I can remember. I was asked during confession one day when I was 16 if I had thought about joining the priesthood. Though it took some time to come to peace with the fact that God was indeed calling me to serve Him in this way, I eventually took the steps to starting this adventure towards the priesthood.
