Vocation Story

I was inspired by my childhood pastor, Father Michael Lane, while attending St. Jude grade school in Joliet. As I entered high school, I made a commitment to keep praying and learning about the faith. I started to seriously discern the priesthood toward the end of high school. I visited St. John Vianney College Seminary in Minnesota during my senior year of high school and felt the Lord’s presence. I knew He was calling me to take the next steps toward priesthood.
