Vocation Story

I was planning on serving as an infantry officer for the United States Army but in between my junior and senior year of college I felt the Lord personally calling me to priesthood while on a training exercise. I returned home and told my Commander that I didn’t want to be an infantry officer, instead I was going to be a Catholic Priest. I changed my branch to the Chaplain Corp and delayed my active duty service to enter seminary. I found that my talents, gifts and desires met with the needs and desires of the Church, which is to be a Catholic Military Chaplain.

Priest Aspirations

Being a father to those that don’t have one.

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

Please pray for the gifts of priestly courage and wisdom.
