Julio Reyes

Third Theology

St. Vincent de Paul Regional Seminary


I am happy for this opportunity to share my vocation story with you.

My name is Julio Hernán Realegeño Reyes and I was born on October 25, 1989 in El Rosario La Paz, El Salvador. Currently, I am studying at Saint Vincent de Paul Regional Seminary in Boynton Beach, Florida. This is my first time here in the United States and I am still learning English.

My discernment process began in El Salvador. When I was a child, my parents always took me to Church for the Mass. When I finished High School, I entered the seminary for the first time. Only five months later, I left it. After five years, I came back to the seminary in 2012 for the Diocese of Zacatecoluca, El Salvador. From then on, I studied philosophy in El Salvador. After three years, our Bishops established a relationship that initiated an international seminarian program and I became part of the Catholic Diocese of Richmond and I am grateful to God because He has called me to follow Him and I am making my best effort every day; I am grateful to Him for you, who are reading my story. Thank you for your support and please, always pray for me.
