Tonsure Recollection

January 30 - February 01, 2021
St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary

Those seminarians receiving the tonsure on February 2 will follow a three-day recollection in preparation for this early - yet important - step in their clerical formation.

Join us in a novena.

Your prayers are requested for these men making these steps towards the priesthood, especially by participating in this special novena to Our Lady.

Recommended reading:

  • The seminary has reproduced Archbishop Lefebvre's reflection on wearing the cassock for your deeper appreciation of the step which the seminarians in the year of spirituality are about to make.
  • The seminary also suggests Priestly Holiness, a collection of writings by Archbishop Lefebvre, on the steps which are made to the priesthood each year in the seminary. It contains much spiritual reflection and insight of our founder. It is used by seminarians and has now been made available to the faithful.

Let us pray.

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.
