My name is Andrew Wentworth and I am from Mobile, AL.  I grew up in and attended school at Corpus Christi.  I am the third of six children.  I graduated from McGill-Toolen Catholic High School in the Spring of 2018.  Throughout my four years at McGill, I ran cross-country and track, was a member of the Chamber Singers, and actively participated in Campus Ministry.  In the summer after my Sophomore year, I started working at Foosackly’s, a delicious chicken finger restaurant that began in Mobile, and worked throughout my final two years of school.  I first thought of priesthood early in middle-school, as an altar server, but I put it off until highschool.  Then, I began to take my faith seriously, and gradually felt a call to discern my vocation at seminary.  I will be returning, this Fall, as a Junior to St. Joseph Seminary College in Covington, Louisiana.  My favorite saint is St. Maximilian Kolbe.  My favorite spiritual reading is The Autobiography of St. Teresa of Avila.
