What were you doing prior to entering seminary?
I was working as a Computer Engineer with the Dept. of Defense, where I worked for thirteen years.
In short, what is your vocation story? Why are you in seminary today.
I was raised in the Episcopal Church where I served at the altar since age ten and felt attracted to the priesthood since high school. I became Catholic in 2012. Since then, I have felt a call to the priesthood more strongly than before. I want to be a priest in order to serve the people of God, help them become saints, and so that I can offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass every day.
Advice to other men considering the priesthood:
Find a good spiritual director and meet with him at least once per month.
Blessed John Henry Newman
