St. John's Seminarians and Religious


We are extremely blessed as a parish to have multiple seminarians and religious.  Please pray for them on a regular basis, and consider writing them and/or sending them care packages.  We want to constantly remind them of how much we love them and support them through our prayer, thoughts and actions.  Families, you have a wonderful opportunity to introduce your children to our seminarians and religious and to the idea of the discernment of God's will in their lives; that now is a perfect time for them to be praying about their own vocation.
