In 2022, since I worked remotely and could live anywhere I wanted, I moved to Austin, Texas to spend time with my friends there. On my first Sunday in Austin, I chose to attend Saint Mary Cathedral – now my home parish – nearby, and instantly felt at home. I soon joined the young adult ministry there, and even began altar serving, which sparked my discernment of the priesthood. After discerning for over six months, I decided to apply to seminary and further discern God’s will for me.
