Vocation Story

Growing up in a family of seven, I was raised Catholic by my parents who led by example. Going to Mass every Sunday from a young age, I was around priests a lot and especially in my own family. I had a relative who was a Jesuit priest who baptized me and all my siblings. When I felt the pull towards discerning the priesthood, he first encouraged me to seek a spiritual director. After an impactful Kairos retreat my senior year of high school and an amazing pilgrimage to Medjugorje in 2009, I began to take more ownership of my faith. I had the opportunity to go deeper in my faith through the wonderful education I received at the University of Dallas where I entered the diocesan seminary on campus. After graduating in 2013 with a degree in Philosophy, I took a year off in order to look at various religious orders due to my growing desire to be in community life. After settling on the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius, I applied and was accepted in the summer of 2014.

Priest Aspirations

Being a father to others and preaching the faith to the world.

What has been your favorite/most memorable story of your time at Mundelein thus far?

My most memorable experience has been the Welcome Weekend in which all the seminarians participated in a workday, sports, barbecue food, and fraternity. It was an inspiring and encouraging experience to be around and have fun with so many other young men who are seeking to serve the Lord at His altar.
