Year: Spirituality Year

Why am I studying to become a priest? I’m in the seminary because I felt certain that this was the next step God wanted me to take in my life. Throughout this first year of formation I’ve seen more and more the beauty and significance of the priesthood and it would be amazing to become a priest at this time in the Church when we have such need of holy and well-formed priests to contribute to the renewal of the world, the culture and the Church herself.

Favorite food: Pancakes have pretty much always been my favorite, especially since they’re one of the only things I can make myself as well as being easily customizable.

Favorite sport: Hockey and basketball are definitely tied for top spot.

Favorite movie: I don’t have one in particular, but Action/Adventure is my favorite category.

Favorite book: The Silmarillion by J.R.R.Tolkien

Favorite hobby/extracurricular activity before I became a seminarian: Some of my friends and I made a music group in the High School seminary here and performed for talent shows which was amazingly fun and something I’ve always wanted to do.

If I could be one superhero who would I be and why: I would be Quicksilver because who doesn’t want to be that fast?

Favourite quote: “He said to them: Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” – Matthew 4:19
