Project Andrew

On January 7th, Bishop DiMarzio, Father Sean Suckiel,’03,  Father Fonti,’84, Father Kuroly,`01, Father Rodriguez, and Father Herrera, ’05,  led a conversation about their vocation to priesthood, during a Cathedral initiative called Project Andrew. 23 Cathedral men and 3 Xaverian men sat in the Cathedral Studio listening to each vocation story. Bishop DiMarzio spoke about the multiple emotions priest encounter during their discernment time and time as a priest. He highlighted the emotions of sadness from a funeral to the joys and gladness of a Baptism, daily Mass, and Reconciliation.  Father Kuroly, a graduate and Assistant Principal of Cathedral, spoke about the communication with his pastor growing up. His pastor asked him “Why are you going to Cathedral?”, he responded with, “To become a priest”. His pastor responded with a simply yet powerfully, he said, “No. You go there to fall in love.”

After the priests finished, Bishop DiMarzio engaged the young men with a Question and Answer session. Finally, we wrapped the night up with dinner.
