Vocation Story

I first started feeling the call to go to seminary my sophomore year of high school. After a couple years of private discernment and working at an Ace Hardware, I decided to apply to minor seminary right out of high school. I went to the House of Formation in Wichita, KS for four years before now coming to Mundelein.

Priest Aspirations

I am excited for the many unexpected yet amazing encounters that I will have given to me by the Lord.

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

Please pray that I accept my daily crosses, that I am grateful for the blessings given to me, and that I continue to grow closer to Christ.
