St. Joan of Arc, Kokomo, IN
Sean attributes his discernment process to a combination of prayer, adoration, silent retreats and confession. He was involved with Christ Renews His Parish, RCIA, high school religious education, as well as volunteering at his parish festival. These activities, plus his work/career and coaching youth were instrumental in his discernment to become a seminarian. Father Kenneth Raczek, who is a family friend, is an example to Sean in his own love for the priesthood and his calling. Sean’s uncle, Father John M. Kinney, was called to the priesthood at an early age and inspired him by his love for his vocation and his enjoyment in teaching the faith to others. Father Ted Dudzinski was another influential priest for Sean in that he was centered in prayer, the Mass and the sacraments, and led by his example.
We will be praying for you Seminarian Sean Aaron! Best wishes at the start of the year of studies!
