Please pray for our seminarians who have wrapped up seminary for this school year (this means our 8th Adopt-a-Seminarian program will start again in August). Please pray for Deacon Jacob Mlakar and Deacon Jonathan Torres, who anticipate ordination to the priesthood on June 20. Some seminarians will receive "summer assignments" from the diocese, and these will be posted on the Catholic News Herald's website and Facebook page when available. The St. Joseph College seminarians have completed their move to their beautiful new seminary near Belmont Abbey.
“Jesus went around to all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and curing every disease and illness. At the sight of the crowds, his heart was moved with pity for them because they were troubled and abandoned, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, ‘The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest." -Matthew 9:35-38
- the Adoption Certificate: this has the name and photo of your seminarian and other important information, as well as a few details to help you get to know him a little better.
- the Adoption Guide: this is a booklet containing real time needs based on where your seminarian is in school, and where he is in the formation process, should you like to help with in a spiritual or practical way.
