Watch: On the Path to the Priesthood: Jon Bokuniewicz

Meet Diocese of Lansing seminarian Jon Bokuniewicz who is studying for the sacred priesthood at Saint John Vianney College Seminary in Minnesota.

“For me, it was, it's pretty simple. I think. For me, it's really just that I fell madly in love with the Lord and his people,” says Jon who hails from the parish of Saint Augustine in Howell.

“Seeing my priest and him ministering to the people really set my heart on fire and I knew from a pretty young age, middle school, high school, just seeing all the beauty was of parish life, I knew that that's what I wanted.”

Please do keep Jon in your prayers in the months and years to come. Saint Charles Borromeo, patron of seminarians, pray for him.
