LUKE BARTHOLOMEW PARMENTER

My path to seminary began in my family.  My perfect parents instilled in my siblings and I a love for service and sacrifice.  That upbringing came to fruition in my junior year of high school following my Confirmation.  While praying in discernment before the Blessed Sacrament, I asked God what His plan was for me; that night, I heard the call to priesthood.  I was overwhelmed by support in my family and my community and took it as God’s will for my life!
