Who inspired you to be a priest?

Why do you want to be a priest?
I have a draw to the Sacraments, and the world needs them now more than ever.

What do you look forward to the most about seminary?
Deepening my relationship with Christ and His Church while building new friendships and connections with others.

What are you most grateful for?
The love and support I have from my family and the Church.
