He attended Mabou Consolidated School and was involved in community activities including 4-H, Gaelic Camps, Cadets, swimming, cross country running, track, and hockey. At the age of thirteen, Kramer attended boarding school at the Immaculate Conception Apostolic School in New Hampshire, USA.

Kramer later completed his Bachelor of Philosophy in Rome, Italy. He then moved back to Connecticut as an assistant to the Rector of the Seminary for three years. In the final year of his internship, Kramer served in Michigan doing Youth Ministry, ECYD, and Missions, and at Everest Collegiate High School and Academy. He has continued to organize and participate in Missions to Haiti.
