My vocation story starts at the 2018 Steubenville Lone Star conference. When Fr. Mike Schmitz called to the stage all men discerning priesthood, only because of Divine Providence, I ran up there and received the call to discern it for the first time. I then reflected on how abundantly I have been blessed through my parish and family. I knew I had a responsibility to do good with my blessings and the desire to serve in parish priesthood perfectly lined up with that desire. God has confirmed my following Him with two amazing years of formation. All thanks be to God!
