Who inspired you to be a priest?
One of my greatest inspirations is my family, especially my parents.  St. Joseph, my pastor Fr. Chuck Schwartz, my Godfather Fr. Michael Shea, and my brother Andre, all inspired me to discern the priesthood.
Why do you want to be a priest?
Ultimately, I want to do the Lord’s will and I believe He is calling me to discern priesthood.  Serving God’s people in a very real way, especially through the sacraments.
What are you most grateful for?
For God’s passionate love for His people and for the gift of being a son of God.
