Hello. My name is Ken. I have been discerning the Call for quite a long time, since I was knee-high and my Grandpa took me to Holy Hill. I am particularly discerning a vocation as a religious ordered priest, namely as a Discalced Carmelite Friar. I hope this blog offers some assistance to you in discerning your own vocation. Please visit this blog often and journey with me as we all discover the call that God has given to each us.

      Dear Mr. Deschenes,

      Thank you so much for your gracious comment. I am humbled by your words. Your prayers are strong before the Throne of God because of the suffering and love that comes with them. My family and I will continue to pray for you – please pray for us as well.

    After experiencing the privilege of getting married at Holy Hill in 1976, your precious grandpa delivered my 4 daughters a few years later- between 1979 and 1986. We often discussed what a glorious church/shrine Holy Hill is! The doctor also used to joke about the irony of my husband and 5 brothers (no sisters) being in the 6’4”-6’6″ range and him having only daughters and no son. God had other plans and sent us one (Dan) 8 years after our last 2/twins were born. My prayer now is that God-willing he, too, may someday serve in the holy priesthood. You will be in our prayers and we ask that you keep Dan in yours also. I will always have fond memories and extreme gratitude for your grandfather. He was a very special doctor and extremely dedicated family man! May God shine his eternal light on his humble soul.God bless you.
