“In 2018, I joined the RCIA and Youth Confirmation ministries with my parish and from there I felt the Holy Spirit calling me to something greater. With the help of my spiritual advisor, I felt I was being called to priestly formation and began discerning this call. I was accepted into priestly formation in March 2022. Bishop David L. Toups is very fond of both the staff and program here at Pope St. John XXIII National Seminary, and after only a few weeks, I feel the same. I am truly blessed to be here!”
