Hobbies/Interests: I enjoy quality time with my family and friends, and also enjoy playing and listening to music. I am interested in helping others in my community and have done so by joining the Knights of Columbus and assisting in their charitable works.

What were you doing prior to entering the seminary? I was a student at Paul VI High School.

What influenced your decision to enter the seminary? With much thought and many prayers, support from local priests, family and friends, I decided to enter the seminary.

What are the highlights of the seminary? Life in the seminary has been very rewarding. I have been able to learn a great deal about my faith and the teachings of Holy Mother Church. I have had the opportunity to build relationships with other young men discerning the priesthood and grow in fraternity at the seminary.

Advice to other young men considering the priesthood: Get involved in your parish, attend discernment groups and the Holy Hours provided through the diocese, and speak to a local priest.
