I am 7 feet tall. I am related to Father Scott Hahn (NOT Dr. Scott Hahn)
Since I was in grade school, I had always said I wanted to be a priest. As I grew older, I pushed the priesthood aside because it wasn’t the “Cool” occupation. I graduated high school and left for out-of-state college. It was my first time away from home, and I lost my faith and became focused on video games, and struggled even after I returned home.
I had begun to teach faith formation at my parish and ended up going on a retreat with my students. I experienced Adoration for the first time and felt a calling to go to reconciliation. I went to reconciliation, which was probably my second reconciliation ever, and got a lot of things off my chest that had been weighing me down. I then visited the minor seminary my Diocese sends to and realized that Seminary was more like college and less like the monastic life I thought it would be like. I then started the application process and here I am now.
Serving others and helping to draw them closer to Christ
