My faith was always important to me when I was growing up, but I never seriously considered being a priest. I went to college, graduated and entered the workforce. Although the jobs I had were fine, I started to feel called to a life of ministry in the priesthood. At first I was afraid to give up my job, apartment and other things, but I eventually trusted God enough to give the seminary a shot.
I have entered my fifth year of seminary this fall. It has been an adventure full of wonderful surprises and I’m glad I made the jump.
