The Servite Rosary (The Seven Sorrows of Our Lady)
I attended daily Mass with my family, and as I paricipated my heart was captured both by the beauty of the liturgy and joy of the priests at my home parish. Through altar serving, I began to fall more deeply in love with the Eucharist and made weekly visits to the perpetual adoration chapel where Our Lord was always present. I first heard the call to priesthood through the voices of those who I encountered, both parishoners and even people who I did not know well, encouraging me to consider Christ’s call. While I was still nervous about priesthood, I visited the college seminary and experienced a heartfelt peace and joy there. Immediately after high school I entered college seminary, where I have grown in my relationship with God. It is in silent prayer that I received a profound call from Our Lord to follow Him in the priesthood. During my seminary journey, I have continued to fall more deeply in love with the heart of Jesus the Good Shepherd and grown in my desire to serve His flock.
I look forward to bringing the love of Christ to others as a priest and celebarting the sacraments
