Throughout much of my youth attending a small-town Catholic school, I desired an ordinary life and future for myself, one that involved marriage, children, and normality. Through my involvement and service at Saint Mary’s Catholic Center and its ministry, I received a flourishing of my faith and my interior life and felt a call to the priesthood my senior year. After much prayer, spiritual direction, and peace, I am thankful and blessed to be here in priestly formation at Holy Trinity Seminary.
