My Vocation Story

I came from a very Catholic family, and I believe my vocation to the priesthood starts at home. I grew-up on the farm, and that is the reason why I love nature. I am the youngest in the family and I have three sisters. My parents are farm workers, and I used to work on the farm too!

After my high school, through the influence of some priests and seminarians, I decided to enter the seminary. What attracted me to enter the seminary is the fact that a priest is a servant of God, and willing to sacrifice his life for others in the name of love. My seminary training  is helping me a lot in terms of growth and development. It is in the seminary that I learn to value relationships and to be more independent. I am the youngest in the family so I grew-up very dependent on my parents, but when I was in the seminary in my country I learned to wash my clothes using my bare hands, also learned to work with different personalities and communities outside the seminary. I learned to value life and God.
