John-Paul Legare

Before Seminary I was attending Frederick Community College and working at a pizza restaurant. I was also a volunteer math tutor for seventh grade.

One thing that attract me to the priesthood is the sacrament of confession. I have experienced the grace of God in confession too many times to count and it is one of the greatest ways that I receive God’s mercy. I would love to be able to bring that mercy and forgiveness to other children of God.

Therese of Lisieux is a great model for me right now. I love the way that she used her littleness and many of the inadequacies she had to glorify God. She knew how truly beloved she was by God and how ready he was with his mercy every time that she failed.
