Hello! My name is Benjamin Jackson and I am from St. Mary Parish in Hudson, Ohio. I first began to really learn about what it meant to be Catholic, and truly embrace my Faith throughout my Junior year of high school, before I was confirmed. I became highly involved with St. Mary’s Lifeteen program and fell in love with the Faith. I did not begin discerning the priesthood until my senior year of high school. After having a very profound experience in front of the Blessed Sacrament, I began to reach out and learn more about the seminary. Through the help of the seminarians already from St. Mary’s, the Lifeteen staff, Fr. Pat Anderson, and Fr. Mike McCandless, I decided Borromeo Seminary was where I needed to be.
