Isaiah Minke

I began discerning my vocation in high school. As I grew in my faith through much prayer and reading, I found that God’s call towards the priesthood became clear. I entered seminary after high school and was thoroughly blessed in my first year. Living in a community of committed disciples has fostered transformation, not just for the priesthood, but for holiness. I think that is something everyone should experience in one’s own way.
