Why did you become a seminarian?
The first time I recognized the possibility of a calling to the priesthood it took me by great surprise and came with the recognition of a personal thirst for meaning and purpose. This desire is Jesus’ personal invitation to “come and see” (Jn 1:39). That invitation has since weighed on my heart, and in my desire to do His will and follow in His footsteps, I needed to enter the seminary.
Before you entered the seminary, what were you doing?
Most recently, I worked as a server at Olive Garden. Since graduating from college I also spent two years as a FOCUS Missionary and some time in a religious order, the Fathers of Mercy.
An interesting fact about you
I enjoy seeing new places, and would like to visit all 50 states.
