My vocation story really took off after a retreat at the beginning of my junior year of high school. I felt the call to the priesthood while sitting in adoration at three in the morning; all other desires for college and engineering were wiped away. From there I began to frequent adoration every day and the call to the priesthood only grew. I talked to my vocation director during my senior year, and he sent me to HTS.
