We all have a role in praying and encouraging vocations today – to religious brothers and sisters, to the Sacrament of Marriage between a man and woman, and the the Sacrament of Holy Orders. During the 2nd lockdown restrictions Deacon Steven Gaudet was my roommate for a few shorts week! He has now returned to St. Peter’s Seminary in London, ON, to finish his studies. We prayed together, ate together (*he did most of the cooking*), shared some ministry together, and played chess. Here is my quick interview with him regarding his journey towards answering the call God in Our Lord Jesus Christ was putting on his heart to become a priest for the Archdiocese of Ottawa-Cornwall. The first part was a live chess game, blitz 5+4! Guess who won? Enjoy!
