Deacon, Year 6
St. Mary's College, Oscott
Hello, my name is Benedict.
I grew up in the South West of England, and it was whilst I was in secondary school that I began to feel called to the priesthood. I spent some time discerning this vocation and decided to apply to formation for the priesthood when I left sixth form. I have had a wonderful six years as a seminarian, beginning with a propaedutic year at St Alban’s College, Valladolid, before being asked to continue my formation at St Mary’s College, Oscott.
In my free time I enjoy walking, reading about US history and following current affairs. Please keep me in my prayers in my final months before ordination to the diaconate, and be assured of my prayers also!
