Why did you become a seminarian?
I felt the Lord leading me to seminary through various circumstances throughout high school. Volunteering in a nursing home, serving at the Cathedral, regularly attending daily Mass and Adoration at Peoria Notre Dame, and the examples of holy priests and religious sisters helped me to hear Christ’s call. Looking back on all of these points, I knew that I needed to go to seminary to discern if God was calling me to the priesthood.
Before you entered the seminary, what were you doing?
Before I entered the seminary, I was a high school student at Peoria Notre Dame.
