Hello, my name is Gabriel Newberry and I’m from Philadelphia PA ( born and raised)… All my life I’ve felt somewhat called to the priesthood. However, there was always a certain insecurity in me that dissuaded me from the notion. But, as I grew my priorities became clear, and I decided to pursue my calling of the priesthood and to discern what exactly God wants from me. This wantingness to delve deeper into my faith is what led me here, where I am currently in the Capuchin formation program. Thank you so much for reading, and God bless you. I ask this with a sincere sense of humility, please pray for me and my fellow seminarians in our journeys of discernment.
