Discernment Group

Our discernment group will begin again on September 16. This is a very benefitial tool for those who are trying to figure out God's call. I am excited to get started again. If you wish to be part of this group, you must first have a meeting with me, Fr. Jeff Shooner, the Associate Vocation Director. The best way to catch me is usually at

I look forward to hearing from you. May the Master of the Harvest continue to provide workers for his harvest.

Seminary Begins Again

Prayers and best wishes go out to all the guys starting or returning to seminary this fall. We have an ordination to priesthood on Sept. 6, 12 men in seminary formation, one in formation on a pastoral year, and one man under the pastoral provision doing part time studies at St. Mienrad while working in a parish. That's 15 total (soon to be 14 because of the ordination, praise God). We also have three men who have completed the application process and are currently affiliates with the Archdiocese of Louisville that will, God willing, be entering the seminary next fall.

New Guys

Hey Everybody! It seems like the Spirit keeps moving. Pending some unexpected difficulties, we have accepted two more gentlemen into the priesthood formation program for the Archdiocese of Louisville. Jay Blandford and Adam Carrico were welcomed as Seminarians this evening. Please congratulate them on this achievement. See you all at Clergy Day on Monday.

There's even a video up. We used it last year at the Dinner With The Archbishop event. Enjoy!
