CP : So Chad, I recently heard you have been called to the transitional diaconate, what was that moment like for you?
Chad: Well there are two aspects that come to mind. One is great joy, as in I came to the seminary in hopes of becoming a priest and that’s what I … it could be what I’m called to. So I came to the seminary to discern and when I got called … I guess you could say I was very happy that I achieved the first major step towards the priesthood. I had achieved that moment when I received the letter.
