Prior to entering the seminary
Working for my Dad doing government contracts in the electrical field. Before that I was working in the public school system in South Dakota as head of the Maintenance Department. I also was playing banjo in my spare time and teaching people how to play; and trained horses in South Dakota.
Learning about myself and earning a degree. Also learning that I can adjust to the academics so far and I feel confident that I am up to the challenge. I also enjoy my friends and going to Mass and being surrounded by priests.
Favorite thing I have learned while in seminary
Math!! I can’t believe I am actually learning Math!! I am learning about myself and seeing where I need to grow.
I decided that I want to spend the rest of my life serving others as I haven’t done enough in the past. I want to be able to discern God’s call in my life and, so far, looks promising. I want to see if God wants me to serve in his church as a priest.
