The path to the priesthood for Father Mike Murray, 66, has been quite a journey. A widower, Murray has two adult children, 35 and 30. With their blessing, Murray answered God’s call to serve.
What was the process that led you to pursue the priesthood?
I have been a deacon since 2005. Following the death of my wife, I spoke with several priests, prayed about this possibility and then approached the bishop. He was willing to let me begin the process, and so here we are.
