Eight men – the largest class of new priests in our diocese since 1964! Listen to the fascinating journey of two of these men, Deacons Peter Chineke and Michael Berndt, as they are about to be ordained priests June 19. Hear how an Amtrak ride made a vocational impact on Deacon Berndt and why working in the secular world didn’t fulfill him. Also, hear why Deacon Peter originally wanted to become a doctor, what led him to pursue the priesthood, and how his life path to Springfield first took him all over the world. Join us on this episode of Dive Deep as we also celebrate the class of 2020.
