SC: What is it about Hispanic ministry that you enjoy?

CH: I have never thought about that. But the Catholic faith is very strong within the Hispanic culture. It just permeates the culture more. Where as here in the states it’s very much more—I don’t know how to say—it’s not quite like that. It’s just sort of that passion for the faith too—to live it out, to teach it, to bring it to others—that sort of excites me as well.

Following is the story of Patrick May's journey to the seminary, reprinted with permission from the Spring 2017 Diocesan Vocations Newsletter.

Patrick May drifted away from the Catholic faith throughout college, but eventually he rediscovered his love of Jesus and the Catholic Church and experienced a true conversion of heart.

 

The only problem was that, after his prayer life began growing, he started to think that Jesus was calling him to become a priest.

The first time he envisioned himself as a priest came when he was in high school, but no, he thought. He wanted a challenge.
