Those seminarians receiving the cassock or tonsure will follow a four-day recollection in preparation for these early - yet important - steps in their clerical formation.
Bp. Bernard Tissier de Mallerais will celebrate a Pontifical High Mass on February 2 during which he will bless the cassock and confer the tonsure.
Your prayers are requested for these men making these steps towards the priesthood, especially by participating in this special novena to Our Lady.
O Lord, grant us priests.
O Lord, grant us holy priests.
O Lord, grant us many holy priests.
O Lord, grant us many holy religious vocations.
O Lord, grant us many holy Catholic families.
V. St. Pius X,
R. Pray for us.
