Vocation Story

I felt called while in high school, but ran from it. It finally caught up to me in the middle of college and couldn’t fight it any longer. It was all around; everywhere I looked, priesthood was looking back at me. I knew I had to go to seminary. I decided to finish my degree and then I entered seminary and I have a deep lasting peace because of it.

Priest Aspirations

Bringing people to Jesus and Jesus to people. It’s as simple as that.

What has been your favorite/most memorable story of your time at Mundelein thus far?

The moment when we had our first Mass together as a community and everyone was singing and the organ was playing, it was just a moment of pure joy and beauty. Everyone in this room is here because they want to make the next generation of priests better.

How can Mundelein's donors and community pray for you?

Pray that I may become the man God is calling me to be.
