I have wanted to become a priest since I can remember. I played Mass when I was young and always loved to serve at the altar. This calling was felt through high school and even throughout dating. I was nervous about applying but after a wonderful retreat in the winter of 2019, I asked for the application. These past three years have been some of the most formative and blessed of my life, and I cannot thank the Lord enough for calling me to seminary and hopefully one day as His priest.
