Jeremy Maness

I first encountered the faith at Christ the King Catholic School from kindergarten to 4th grade. Upon moving to Frisco, and a new parish, I initially struggled to have a good relationship with God. However, receiving the Holy Spirit in Confirmation awakened me to new life in Christ. I started volunteering with my youth group and quickly realized that God had given me the gifts and the will to serve his Church. By my senior year, that will had led me to the joy and peace of Holy Trinity Seminary, where I’m currently discerning my vocation.
