Vocation Story

Growing up I was very involved in my parish, doing ministries and going to youth group and mission trips. When I went to college I got involved at the Newman Center and began leading prayer groups and Bible studies and praying with a good group of students. I started to listen to God in prayer and eventually he led me to the seminary! Since coming to seminary I’ve continued to listen to God’s call and through prayer and discernment I believe God is calling me to serve Him and His Church as a priest.

Priest Aspirations

Confession

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

I would ask for prayers that I would be given the gifts of fortitude and courage!
