Adam Blatt (Biography)
My name is Adam Blatt. I was born 28 January 1982 and grew up in
Georgia. I have 3 younger brothers still living there. In 2000 I joined the Air
Force and served as an aircraft mechanic for 6 years. At the end of my
enlistment I made the decision to enter into seminary. I joined the
Archdiocese of Atlanta and came to Chicago to study at St. Joseph College
Seminary. After about 2 years studying for Atlanta, and learning more
about the proper ways in which to discern God's will in my life, I made the
decision to transfer permanently to the Archdiocese of Chicago. I truly
believe this is where God has called me to serve. I finished with another 2
years at St. Josephs where I got a degree in philosophy and a minor in
cultural anthropology. After college seminary I was accepted at University
of St Mary of the Lake Seminary here in Mundelein. I am currently in my
second year of theology here at Mundelein and will be entering into my
internship this spring. God willing I will be ordained
