Vocation Story

God invited me to consider priesthood when I was in 7th grade. Since then, I’ve kept the conversation going with God. Ongoing conversations with people of faith led me to the Paulists and then to the Jesuits, and ultimately to the Diocese of San Jose.

Priest Aspirations

Continuing to be a beloved son of God and to help others realize God’s love for them.
