Why am I studying to become a priest? I am studying to become a priest because through a deepening of my faith and spiritual life, I was able to understand God’s infinite love for me. With this at heart, I felt a call from Him to share with others this great love he has revealed to me.

Favorite food: Fried chicken and pizza

Favorite hobbies/extracurricular activities before you became a seminarian: I really enjoyed singing choral music in high school and being part of the music ministry in CFC-Youth. Music was a big part of my life before I became a seminarian, and it still is to this day.

If you could be one superhero, who would you be, and why? I would love to be Iron Man. Having a suit of armour to protect you from danger and being able to fly around helping people sounds really cool.

Favourite quote: “And a voice came from heaven, ‘You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased.’” Mark 1:11
