DEACON MICHAEL TRAIL
SAINT: Servant of God Augustus Tolton
BOOK: The Priest is Not His Own by Fulton J. Sheen
SCRIPTURE: Mt 16:24-27
Michael grew up and received his Sacraments at St. Vincent de Paul in Detroit, MI. He now considers St. Benedict (Irving Park) his home parish. His current pastor is Fr. Jason Malave.
The best advice he received while discerning was “Don’t be afraid. Just give the priesthood a chance.” As a seminarian, Michael would advise anyone who is discerning to be open to the spirit and trust that God will give you the strength to answer His call.
