My vocation story begins just after high school, shortly before enrolling at Texas A&M University.  I began to realize that the predispositions and plans that I had for myself were unsatisfying and causing a lack of joy.  It was through diligent prayer that I was able to invite the Lord to allow His perfect will into my life.  It was this invitation that led me to discern entering seminary.  Now, with the constant help of God’s grace, I discern a vocation to the priesthood with great joy and confidence.
