Over the past few days St Thomas Aquinas Seminary has welcomed 21 young men, who have come to the seminary to answer God’s call to come and give themselves to Him. The majority of the incoming seminarians are from the United States, but joining them is one Scot and two Canadians. They are leaving parents, jobs, studies and other opportunities in the world to come and be formed as priests. This formation will take seven years – their expected ordination date is June 2030!
The first step for their formation, even before starting classes, is a five-day Ignation retreat, which will run from 8-13 October. We ask for your prayers and offerings for these young men over the next seven years, and especially while on their opening retreat.
