I first began thinking of the priesthood after my pastor asked me if I wanted to be a priest. I was about ten years old at the time. As I got a little older I became very involved in my parish’s youth group. That was a great positive influence on me and really helped me to grow in my faith. During that time in high school, I began to hear God calling me, in very subtle ways, to the priesthood. However, I was afraid to respond at that time. I went to college and hoped that I would forget about it. While I was in college I became very involved at the Newman Center. As that was happening I made a lot of good Catholic friends and started going to daily mass. These things both helped me to grow in love for God and the Church. Late in college, I really started feeling a strong call to the priesthood. After I finished my degree program I applied and came to the seminary.
