Peter Whitfield

Growing up, I felt drawn towards the priesthood but tried to ignore the idea. Through a Latin immersion at Wyoming Catholic College, two summers as a counselor at the Pines Catholic Camp, involvement with the Catholic Campus Ministry at Southern Methodist University, good advice and spiritual guidance from a holy priest, and lots of prayer, the call of the diocesan priesthood grew louder and clearer. By graduation from SMU in 2018, I was prepared to heed that call and enter seminary.
