Fr. Craig Vasek, Pastor at St. Patrick Church in Hallock, MN, in the Diocese of Crookston, MN, shared his vocation story from promiscuous youth to priesthood. On the broadcast, Father discussed how he was invited to a retreat in his freshman year of college where he sensed that a change was needed in his young adult lifestyle. While at retreat he took the opportunity of the Sacrament of Reconciliation, where Fr. Vasek says acknowledging all of his sins brought “freedom.” Then within a couple of months while attending Mass, he says, God invited him to become his priest.

Fr. Vasek talked about the benefits of entering seminary, to truly discern God’s will and to grow in faith.
