Vocation Story

I felt the call to be a priest as a young child. Thanks to the excellent religious upbringing my family gave me, I entered seminary out of high school and spent seven years in formation. At the end of that time, I felt God might be calling me to do something else, so I took two years off to be a teacher which was a great experience. I felt the call to the priesthood again though, and thus this Spring I applied to join the Diocese of Jefferson City, which has brought me here to Mundelein.

Priest Aspirations

Being with the people of God

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

Please pray that I am open to the Holy Spirit in this time and that I grow in holiness. I would also appreciate it if you would pray for my Bishop, Sean McKnight, my diocese, my family, and my students.
