Jerome Robles

Age: 25

Parish: Our Lady of Good Counsel Parish, Surrey

Year: Theology IV

Why am I studying to become a priest? The first thought of the priesthood came to me when I was 5 years old, and this desire has grown since then. Serving at the altar and praying before the Blessed Sacrament in adoration continues to foster my relationship with Christ in joyfully embracing His call. By offering my life to Jesus and His Church, I hope to lead others in closer union with our Lord through the celebration of Holy Mass and the Sacraments.
