While in Poland at World Youth Day, recent graduate, Pedro Castillo, `16, confirmed God’s Will for him to discern a vocation to the priesthood. In his four years at Cathedral Prep, Pedro discerned seriously his vocation to the priesthood, having attended Father Fonti’s weekly discernment group and while achieving great academic success. At graduation, Pedro had plans to study Engineering at City College. Pedro said, that he chose to follow God’s Will and not his own because, “He has never let me down.”
Returning enthusiastically and joy filled to Cathedral he shared his good news with Mr. Diaz and Father Fonti and several of his classmates, who met to take him to breakfast. A member of the Neocatechumenal Way, Pedro has accepted their invitation to go to their seminary in Taiwan.
As we continue to foster priestly vocations at Cathedral, we pledge our prayerful support to our brother.
