“Certainly coming to the College has helped me in my vocation discernment,” remarked Derek Remus at the time of his graduation in 2011. “Studying St. Thomas, philosophy, and theology has increased my love of the intellectual life and has made me think more about a kind of teaching and preaching vocation in the priesthood.” After graduation, his plan was to spend some time retiring student debt and further discerning his vocation.
On Monday, just two year since his graduation, Mr. Remus will be taking the next step in answering God’s call. “I will be entering St. Joseph’s Seminary in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, as a seminarian for the Diocese of Calgary,” he writes.
Thanks be to God! Please join us in praying for Mr. Remus, his new life as a seminarian, and his continued discernment.
