Seminarians are returning to the seminary to begin another year of study and formation. We welcome 18 new seminarians this fall!
Another academic year has come to a close, and seminarians are heading out for the summer. Younger seminarians will head home and take summer jobs. Older collegian seminarians will have pastoral assignments in parishes around the Archdiocese. All of our seminarians who will be heading to major seminary this fall will be attending the Institute for Priestly Formation for the summer. We wish them all a happy, healthy and fruitful summer!

Men's Discernment Retreat Weekend 2015
We hosted over 40 men this past weekend at our Men's Discernment Retreat! This annual event is a wonderful opportunity for men of all ages to come together with seminarians and priests to try to discern if they are being called to discern a vocation to the priesthood. Everyone had a prayerful, informative, and fun weekend!
