Henry McLeod

I grew up in a devout Catholic family and went to Catholic school for most of my life.  So for most of my life, I was open to the idea of becoming a priest.  However, during high school I had fallen away from that openness and forgot about the idea of seminary.  That was until Easter of my senior year.  I had already committed to going to Colorado School of Mines for college and hadn’t thought of the idea of seminary in a long while.  After serving at the Easter Vigil, I had an overwhelming feeling that I should consider seminary.  The feeling scared me, and I panicked and didn’t know what to do.  After talking with my spiritual director, I found peace in the idea and decided to go to seminary instead of Colorado.
