Vocation Story

I took the entrance examination in the seminary because I wanted to be excused and to skip our Mathematics exam. But God brought me to him and called me to serve him. The poor are the inspiration of my vocation.

Priest Aspirations

I want to serve those people who are in the margins of society. I want to make people come closer to God and hide in His wounds.

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

Please continue for me that I may persevere and that God may sustain me His grace and love.
