Director of Vocations
Archdiocese of New Orleans
Fr. Kurt Young
I am Fr. Kurt Young. I was born and raised in the Archdiocese of New Orleans. At the prompting of the pastor in my home parish of St. Edward the Confessor, I began to discern a call to the priesthood of Jesus Christ; however, it was not until my senior year at Archbishop Rummel High School that I truly felt God’s call deep in my heart. Although I did not enter the seminary straight out of high school, I did continue to discern God’s call even in college.
After a year at Louisiana State University, I transferred to college-seminary at St. Joseph’s in Covington, LA, to finish my undergraduate studies. After four years of major seminary at Notre Dame in New Orleans, I was ordained a priest of Jesus Christ in June 2012. I have enjoyed being a coworker in the vineyard of the Lord ever since the day I entered seminary. I can attest to the fact that God is indeed operative in all of our lives in varied and distinct ways. I hope to continue serving the people of God for many years to come, and I pray that I might be an effective instrument in the hands of God.
