During the pandemic: Because our ministries and programs are online and allow for remote / virtual sign up and participation (including the Adopt-a-Seminarian ministry), we are operating as usual during the covid-19 pandemic.  We will have a limited one-time printing of the Adopt-a-Seminarian Kits to send to parishes, and they will be put together by our ministry team who will wear masks and gloves, to ensure no unwanted "extra" is included.  The process is being coordinated by two of our volunteers in healthcare: one is a medical doctor and one is a registered nurse.  We pray for your health and safety and appreciate your prayers for us.  God bless you!
Summer Seminarian Assignments:  Seminarians wrap up their summer assignments in early August and have a few days to visit family or take care of other personal things before returning to their seminary in middle to late August.

We invite you to enjoy the videos below, from the Catholic News Herald, related to milestones for our priests and seminarians this summer:
