Ss. Cyril and Methodius
Our Lady of the Valley, Easthampton, MA
I was born in Poland, and grew up in a Catholic family. In 2009 I immigrated to United States.
During my Freshman year in high school my faith began to deepen.
I first thought about the possibility of being a priest when I meet one of my friends who at that time was in seminary formation. It was Easter time 2009 when he asked me if I would like to be an altar server. I said yes, and at that particular point for the first time I felt exited about the possibility of serving God. I felt a strong need to pray and follow God desire, which later on lead me to apply to the seminary.
My advice for young men considering the priesthood: be strong,pray, and don’t be afraid!
