MARK GREGORY WILLIARD

After too many years of ignoring God’s call and living life as a lukewarm Catholic, I finally took God’s voice and my faith seriously after hitting my lowest point in the middle of the COVID pandemic.  God raised me out of the darkness and through prayer and His grace, brought me closer to Him.  The more time I spent with God, the more I wanted to follow whichever path He had for me.  I still can’t believe how blessed I am that that path passes through the seminary.
