Seminarian Dario

I was born in 1993 in Eugene, Oregon to Steven and Laurie Rinaldi. I am the oldest child, with only one younger brother, Victor, who was born two years after me. When I was seven years old, my family left our life in Oregon to start a life here in Hawaii, on the island of Maui. We enrolled at St. Joseph Parish in Makawao and I and my brother were enrolled in the parish school, which was run largely by the Dominican Sisters of the Most Holy Rosary. I went to St. Joseph School up through sixth grade, during which time I received a Catholic education and developed a liking for Altar serving at Mass. It was that year that I would say God first called me, though I did not pay much attention back then. I graduated from St. Joseph’s in 2005 and was enrolled at St. Anthony Jr/Sr High School, which was run by the Marianists.

It was during my junior year of high school when I finally responded to the call. With the overwhelming support of my pastor, I began attending vocation retreats and spending a lot of time praying and pondering a possible vocation to the priesthood. I decided to enter seminary after high school and give it a try. And I’ve never regretted it.

It was after entering seminary that I would say I truly matured into an adult. Seminarians straight out of high school are rare these days, but for me it was the best decision. While at college seminary at Mount Angel, I was able to find out who I truly am. Having molded a spirituality from the Benedictines there as well as made lifelong friends, I received my Bachelors of Philosophy, and am now continuing my formation at St. Patrick Seminary.
