    Once-reluctant John Cuppett is now at home in seminary.


    For years, John Cuppett was thrilled to run the bases in order to extend a single to a double, or a double to a triple. Enamored of jetting from one place to the next in the great outdoors, he also competed in cross-country running.

    One type of running, however, did not give Cuppett a thrill. The Four Oaks, North Carolina, native spent many years actively avoiding his call to the priesthood, a vocation he thought was incompatible with sports.


    This misconception was corrected during his four-year tenure as a second baseman and shortstop on the Belmont Abbey College baseball team in North Carolina. Now Cuppett not only sees sports as acceptable, but extraordinarily helpful, for young men contemplating the priesthood.

    Last fall Cuppett entered St. Joseph College Seminary, located right next to Belmont Abbey College. He recently shared his insights into sports, vocational discernment, and the peace and joy that embracing preparation for the priesthood has brought to his soul.
