LUKE ACOSTA

I first started discerning my call to the priesthood in seventh grade while I was a student at All Saints Catholic School. It was then that my love of Christ truly deepened, and only then was I able to hear God’s voice. I received my call the incoming year of my freshman year in high school while on a mission trip to San Antonio. At F.I.S.H. (Forever I Serve Him) Camp, I felt a sense of community with other teens like me, serving others as Christ called us to do.
