Why did you become a seminarian?
I have always had a deep devotion to Christ in the Eucharist and the Sacrament of Reconciliation. At Mass, I would think about how I would say the Mass. Then, in college, I did Totus Tuus for two summers and found that I loved the pastoral nature of the program. Lastly, I wanted to answer the question that was always in my head, “What if I’m meant to be a priest?” So, those three things contributed to my entrance into the seminary.
Before you entered the seminary, what were you doing?
I was preparing to go to graduate school for my Ph.D. in mathematics.
An interesting fact about you
