Fr. Carter Griffin: Former Presbyterian
October 7, 2013
Despite being a child born into a Presbyterian home in Virginia, Fr. Carter Griffin found himself at a young age as a student in a Catholic elementary school in Brazil. Seeds of Christian virtues were planted both by his family and his school. It was while in college at Princeton University, that his friend invited him to a Catholic Mass. It proved to be a real game-changer for Fr. Griffin. Following a stint in the Navy, Fr. Griffin, now a Catholic, was torn between law school and the seminary. Ultimately, he chose the latter and has never looked back. As the Vocations Director for the Archdiocese of Washington, Fr. Griffin shares his thoughts with Marcus about Christian discernment.
