Road to Priesthood as Varied as Priests;
Class of 2008
for Some through Trials, Others through Careers,
Others Right from College
WASHINGTON—For some, such as Hai Duc Din, 46, of the Diocese of Davenport, Iowa, who spent a year in a Vietnamese labor camp, the road to the priesthood was marked by soul-searching ordeal.
For others, such as Martin Laird, MD, 40, of the Diocese of Alexandria, Louisiana, and Kevin Bauman, 47, of the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend, Indiana, and former vice-chairman of the Romance Language Department at the University of Notre Dame, priesthood follows another career.
