ETHAN IGNATIUS SICKING

I grew up in a large Catholic family with 8 siblings and was homeschooled all the way through high school. This foundation really paved the way for me to hear and respond to God’s call.  I first began feeling the call to the priesthood soon after I made a consecration of myself to the Blessed Mother when I was 14.  Through consistent daily prayer, study, and frequent reception of the sacraments, I grew more and more in my conviction that God was calling me to enter seminary, until he led me here!
