WILLIAM FRANCIS HEBERT

After serving God’s Holy Altar for many years as an altar server, I graduated high school with priesthood on my heart. I put off seminary formation for two years, which I spent studying at the University of Dallas. As I progressed in my studies, I struggled to align the lay life I was living with what I thought was my ultimate goal and calling – priesthood. I’m glad to have the opportunity for my studies to align with God’s will for my life, and I’m at peace knowing that I’ve stopped putting off His call.
