My name is Nick Grismer, my vocation story up until now is probably very similar to many others. I first heard God calling me to priesthood when I was very young, about eight years old. Even at a young age I could see the priesthood required sacrifice, so I ran from the path that God was calling me to. The way I saw it, you can’t be attracted to girls and follow God at the same time (I was obviously wrong)! I talked with a priest about what was taking place in my heart and he gave me the best advice that I probably could handle at the time. He told me that as long as I live out my faith to the best of my ability, God would get His way. So, after 10 additional years of attending mass, saying the rosary, regular confession, youth ministry and chasing girls- here I am. God always wins.
