JAVIER PALACIOS

I started to discern my vocation in the last semester of my senior year in college. It was after reading and meditating on Isaiah 43:1-7, that my journey to truly find out what I ought to be in this life started. After three years of discernment and an increasing pull and attraction to the priesthood, I chose to follow the calling of Our Blessed Lord and entered seminary.
