My name is Ethan Croft. I am from Daphne, AL. I’m the third of four boys. I graduated from Daphne High School in 2020. While in high school, I was in AFJROTC and played lacrosse for the Bayhawks. I felt a calling to either the priesthood or the religious life four years ago when I first started converting to Catholicism. I ruled out the religious life after I was unable to go on a retreat to the monastery twice and my mother told me that the priesthood would be a better fit for me. So, I prayed for months about what God wanted me to do when I went into the church an hour before confession and prayed. During the confession, I felt my heart burning and I knew this was the path God wanted me to go on. I will start my first year of seminary at St. Joseph Seminary College in the Fall of 2020. My favorite spiritual read is Confessions by St. Augustine
