What were you doing prior to entering the seminary? I was working full-time at Cento Fine Foods.
What influenced your decision to enter the seminary? Prayer, and what I felt in my heart, had the most impact on me to enter the seminary.
Advice to other young men considering the priesthood: Pray. Listen to your heart. Go to Mass and Eucharistic Adoration as much as possible. Make frequent confessions. Remain in a state of Grace. Have a spiritual director to help you discern. Go to the discernment meetings, which are held once a month during the school season.
