I received my call to Priesthood at a young age. I think I was about 8 or 9 years old. I went a while really wondering whether what I was feeling was for real or just an idea put into my head by others. I left the thought of priesthood alone for a short while during middle and high school, but still felt the call. I graduated from Holy Cross Catholic Academy in May 2007. I entered college seminary in the Fall of 2007.
