Xavier Macfarlane

Born in Westlake, Ohio to a devout Catholic family in 1997. Attended St. Christopher grade school in Rocky River and St. Edward High School. Likes to paint and play guitar in his free time.
“Raised in the Catholic setting, priesthood had always been suggested as a possible life option for me. I pondered it briefly in junior high, and felt my first serious call toward the priestly vocation after a series of retreats the summer of my junior year in high school. Feeling what I can only describe as “invited,” I followed up with Fr. Mike McCandless, the Vocations Director for the Cleveland Diocese. After an inquiring overnight visit and a few heart to heart conversations with him and the Lord, I made my decision to join the seminary community, where to this day I have found true joy and peace.”
