April 26

My name is Ian Willnerd and I’ve always called Boise my home. My family lives ​close to the Cathedral which is my home parish. It was during my junior year of ​high school that I really got involved in my faith and started to discern the path to ​priesthood. After some time, I realized that God was calling me not for my sake, ​but so that through my vocation I might help others.

I graduated in May of 2023 from Bishop White Seminary in Spokane with an ​undergraduate degree. Recently I finished my first year of Theology I classes at ​St. Paul Seminary in Minneapolis, MN.

I am assigned to Minneapolis for the summer of 2024 completing my hospital ​ministry work. In the fall, I will return to St. Paul Seminary to work on my ​Theology II classes.

During my spare time, I enjoy running and hiking. I ask for your prayers as I ​continue to seek God’s will in my life.
