Peter Clinton St Hillaire recalls that he has always felt a close connection and a desire for God; albeit it was something he discerned quietly and secretly. He remembers he was 13 years when he first considered the priesthood. It would take him 37 years, at age 50, to make his first step in his journey to the priesthood.
Growing up in a Catholic home, St Hillaire, the eldest sibling at home with his parents at the time, attended church frequently. While he would talk to God quietly, he always felt a “tugging” in his heart. One, he shared, he just did not understand or could explain.
