My vocation story started…when I was born. However, I didn’t really start to recognize my potential role in this story until my later years in high school when God invited me to undertake a truly wild and daring journey. It began as a sort of love story, as he stirred up the desire to serve others through my local youth group. As I started to grow in my love for serving and caring for others, I began to seek his will even deeper in various discernment events.  Eventually, it led me to embark on this self-sacrificial mission of the priesthood.
