I would like to express my thankfulness to all the people who donated to this years diocesan Seminarian Appeal. Your generosity is truly humbling. Without your help I would not be able to continue in formation. I know that all of you work extremely hard, and that times are tight. I just want you all to know that I am working hard to be the best I can be every day. Although there are many ups and downs through seminary formation, it is nice to know that people really take an interest and support me in this process. Thank you again, and know that you all will be in my thoughts and prayers.
Yours in Christ,
