We have a very special treat for you in this episode! Fr. Robert Murphy is a Jesuit in Houston, TX and his community participated in Behind the Habit: A Virtual Look into Religious Life for Men. Fr. Murphy attended a Jesuit High School in New Orleans, and his parents gave him the freedom to follow God’s path and encouraged him to follow the faith. He first considered the priesthood as an altar server in middle school and later attended college for physical therapy and worked 3 years until he entered the Jesuits in 2003.
An interesting statistic from CARA: Nearly 50% of the newly ordained attended a Catholic elementary or middle school and about 40% attended a Catholic high school.
