Why did you become a seminarian?
The desire to become a priest was placed on my heart during my first Emmaus Days retreat in seventh grade, and although I tried ignoring that attraction for some time, it never seemed to ignore me. As a college freshman, I often felt as though God was calling me to be somewhere else, and it wasn’t until I explored that inclination and opened myself up to God’s will that I realized He was calling me to seminary.
Before you entered the seminary, what were you doing?
I ran track and cross-country as an undecided major at St. Ambrose University for one year.
An interesting fact about you
I am an only child, but contrary to the stereotype, I do not have trouble sharing.
