My vocation story begins in eighth grade when my teacher asked me if I had thought about the priesthood because she thought I could have a calling. I began to pray, asking God if He was calling me to serve Him as a priest. I felt God calling me to be a priest in both my prayer and in seeing the priest say Mass and wanting to do what he was doing.
