Year in Seminary: 2nd Year of College Seminary
Home Parish(es): Holy Trinity
Name one person who influences your decision to go seminary. How did this person encourage you?
Sister Rosalie Steever M.C.! This woman taught me when I was 8 that the life our culture wants me to live in dirt compared to what the Lord desired for me. She also taught me how important loving Mary is in my life.
What do you enjoy most about the seminary?
My favorite things about seminary are the opportunities to grow spiritually. There are almost endless opportunities here to come to love the Lord more and more.
How do you like to spend your free time?
I like to do a few things: Play sports (basketball especially), read a good book, listen to some hoppin’ classical music, or watch awesome movies like Braveheart or The Patriot.
What would be your one piece of advice for a young man discerning his vocation?
Pray for the intercession of the Virgin Mary! She is our Mother and will drag you, if you let her, to the Sacred Heart of her Son where his desires for you are enshrined.
Describe your relationship with the Blessed Mother.
Mary is my inspiration and the woman that constantly brings me closer to Jesus. All she wants for me is to be perfectly united with Jesus, and that is what she pursues for me. She is by far the woman I love the most in my life!
