WILLIAM THOMAS DOBRIENT

My vocation story starts at the 2018 Steubenville conference, Lonestar. When Fr. Mike called to the stage all men discerning priesthood, only because of Divine Providence, I ran up there and received the call to discern this incredible life path for the first time. Simultaneously, I started to learn about our incredible faith and to live it out in prayer and the sacraments. Following, I understood my identity as a child of God, that He was calling me to serve, to give. So, by senior year I set aside my college acceptance letters to attend Holy Trinity Seminary.
