- Enjoy most about being a theology student: Learning more about myself and the Paulists. I am also very excited about getting back into the classroom and to engage in discussions about Jesus’ life, scripture and priestly mission.
Vocation Story: I was born and raised Catholic and was involved in youth ministry in high school where I first thought about exploring the priesthood. After high school I decided to explore my faith life by experiencing other religions and Christian denominations. These paths eventually lead me back to the Catholic Church. When I became involved again with my local parish the call to the priesthood became apparent in my life again. I first heard about the Paulists through the BustedHalo radio show on Sirius XM satellite radio and the BustedHalo website. What I found there was a community of priests who want to show that the teachings of Jesus and the Church are relevant to our lives today. This was what attracted me to this community.
