Vocation Story

I was born in Mexico, but grew up in Atlanta. Ever since the age of reason, I can remember that I felt a strong sense of appreciation for the Eucharist and the priesthood. This idea remained with me even as I entered high school. When I reached my senior year I was not sure if I would be going to college. The example of a holy priest reminded me of my desire for the priesthood. I entered a discernment program at my home parish with other men and women who were exploring the idea of a vocation to the priesthood or religious life. After six months of discernment, I discerned to enter the seminary and I was accepted as a seminarian for the Archdiocese of Atlanta in 2010.
