I remember from the time I was in kindergarten, I had always been interested in the life of a priest and things a priest does. I would be so excited every Sunday to hold the book for the priest- I loved it. I sat in the front pew closest to the priest, (we have an inclusive seating at my parish) and I would wait eagerly to hold the book. As I continuously got older, I got the amazing opportunity to continue to do more.
I still remember from kindergarten when my priest came into our class for a day, did a pretzel craft (Which I still have) and then took us a tour of the church. He showed us his vestments, the sacristy, the stations of the cross. I still remember it, because it really inspired me to become someone like him. He was (and will continue to be) my role-model for the priesthood.
