GAGE PHILIP NEISEN
I grew up on a farm in a small town of about 500 people. I have four siblings and two great parents. I started discerning seminary in my junior year of high school. I fell in love with defending the Church, and I wanted to know more about my Catholic faith. I went to a public university for one year and decided then that the Lord was calling me to discern priesthood more seriously. Since then, I have been following wherever God calls and cannot wait to see what he has planned for me next.
