Discernment Group

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.
