Vocation Story

I first heard the call when I was about 13 years old, but I initially ignored it for a while. When I entered high school, a priest exhorted me to take discernment seriously, and I accepted his challenge. I dove into learning the faith throughout high school, and fell in love with parish ministry during this time. The Lord kept opening doors in the direction of priesthood, so that when it came time to apply for college, I knew that seminary was for me.
