I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio as the oldest of four, and belong to St. Mel Parish. I believe that God has been calling me to discern priesthood ever since I was in grade school. It wasn’t until the end of my eighth-grade year that I started to pray and discuss with my family about going to the seminary. I attended St. Edward High School where I continued to pray and learn eventually deciding to go to Borromeo during my senior year. After completing my first year at Borromeo I am excited to return. I am looking forward to what this year holds in store. Also, thank you to all those who are praying for me and my brother seminarians.
