I thought about the priesthood off and on for much of my youth, and more seriously in high school. By the time I entered college, however, it was not something on my radar. After my freshman year of college, I felt a strong desire to change my major – I started out studying computer science and ended up graduating with a degree in theology – and at that time of discernment the thought of the priesthood entered my mind. I started discerning more seriously, and after much prayer and discernment, I entered seminary.
