What were you doing prior to entering the seminary?I was a student at Holy Spirit High School and, during past summers, I have worked as a beach badge checker in Ventnor and as a ride operator at Storybook Land.

What influenced your decision to enter the seminary?I have felt called to the priesthood since I was seven years old. The example of the many priests in my life, especially my uncle Fr. Jim Worth, has help me to hear the Lord’s calling for me to enter the seminary and discern my vocation.

Advice to other young men considering the priesthood:I would tell a young man considering priesthood to be open to the will of God and to courageously say yes to following His will. Taking that first step and that first leap of faith in saying yes is the only way to discern what God’s plan is for you in your life.
