St. Thomas Aquinas Newman Center at University of Nebraska
Year in Seminary
Conception College Seminary in Conception, Mo.
"My parents cultivated my vocation by laying down a firm foundation of Catholic education. They were my first religion teachers, helping to form my moral and faith development. They taught me to pray diligently and to always care for others. I cannot thank them enough for teaching me the truth of our faith and setting me on the right path. As I began to express my desire and interest in seminary as a young boy they were always joyful and encouraging, and never pressuring. My parents always had a way to keep the desire burning in my heart."
