Joyful Catholic Leaders Show: Becoming a priest in a New Apostolic Age


Deacon Kyle Etzel, set for ordination to the priesthood in the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis in spring 2023, joins the show to talk about becoming a priest in an era when much of the world is turned off toward Christianity. Etzel also shares his vocation story — he was once blindsided by a priest asking if he’d even considered the presbyterate — and how working in young adult ministry while in seminary has prepared him for the next step on his journey.
