Hello! My name is Christopher Hoffmann. I am from Sedalia, MO and my home parish is Sacred Heart in Sedalia. I am entering my first year at Conception Seminary College as a Pre-Theology I student.
After graduating in December 2016 from Iowa State University with a degree in Agricultural Systems Technology, I worked as a bartender at the Sedalia Country Club and a Drafter in the Engineering Department of Waterloo Industries, a manufacturer of toolboxes and garage storage solutions, for a few months.
While at Iowa State University, I was invited to join a Priesthood Discernment Group. Through the meetings, retreats, and visits to seminaries with that group I came to a point where I could no longer discern my vocation in life without the help of formal Seminary Formation.
As I enter the seminary, I am looking forward to learning more, not only about the Catholic Tradition and about what the Church has done and is doing across the globe, but also about myself – who I am and what I am called to do as a son of God.
