Hi there, folks. My name is Noah Furin, I’m a parishioner at St. Ladislas in Westlake, and I live in North Olmsted. I am a cradle Catholic, but I truly started falling in love with the Church when I was in junior high. I was always active in my parish, but I was vehemently against going to the seminary. I was determined to study music education. However, God has a sense of humor, and in the summer between my junior and senior year of high school, during an XLT at the Tolle Lege Summer Institute (check it out, it’s great), I felt my heart opened to consider the seminary. I began thinking and praying about it more seriously, and, well, here we are. I would like to thank my family, friends, fellow parishioners, and my pastor, Fr. Snyder, for supporting my vocational journey. Thank you for your prayers!
