Who inspired you to be a priest?
Fr. Mike Alber through his deep devotion to the sacraments and Fr. Jegar Fickle by his deep love of being a spiritual father to his parishioners.
Why do you want to be a priest?
I want to be a priest so I can ultimately draw people closer to God and to be a spiritual father to those I would serve.
What do you love most about seminary?
What I love most about the seminary is the brothers I have. We are all men striving for the same good doing the same things together, whether that be our times of prayer as a house to being fun and playing football together. We are all doing it out of the love for each other and the Lord.
What are you most grateful for?
I am most grateful for my parents who have supported me in this journey as well as the parishioners of St. John Vianney who have helped me to get to where I am today.
