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 their ministry while attending Texas A&M, 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 in priestly formation here at Holy Trinity Seminary.
