Why am I studying to become a priest? Christ is calling me to pour out my life for love of God and others just as He did on the altar of the Cross and throughout His entire life. As a man, I believe that it might be through the vocation of the ministerial priesthood that I am being called to love God and others.

If you could be one superhero, who would you be, and why? I would choose to be Superman. I think this is a great choice because, among other great reasons, I would be able to fly around in space and visit other planets in our solar system!
