Vocation Story

After falling away from the faith in my early twenties, I came to know who Christ truly is through the patience of my parents, support from my home parish, and some seminarians who saw more in me than I saw in myself. I was invested in, and that made all of the difference. Still I was a stubborn young man, but I first became convicted to consider the priesthood after a deeply moving encounter with Christ in the Eucharist.

Priest Aspirations

To bring the love of Christ to a world starving for love.
