“It was a moment of great freedom, of choice, that I had options.”

Archbishop Wilton Gregory was a student at a Chicago South Side Catholic grammar school when he decided to convert to Catholicism and become a priest.

His Crossroads was when as a college junior, he realized he could attend an Ivy League university. Contemplating the emerging opportunities for African-Americans, he flirted with the idea, but decided to recommit to become a priest, eventually being chosen to lead the Atlanta Archdiocese in 2004.

“It was a Crossroads moment because it allowed me to see options and to decide what I wanted to do was what God wanted me to do,” he said.
