Who influenced / inspired you to priesthood? The persistent questioning of dear friends influenced my decision to study for the priesthood.

What would you say to a young man who thinks he may have a vocation? It can be a very unsettling thing to first feel you are being called. Do not be afraid. Do not be afraid to seek out the vocations director. It takes courage to do so, but you will never regret doing it.

Favorite Scripture: Isaiah 6:5-8

Favorite saint: St. Maria Goretti, St. Marcellus the Centurion
