Seminarians Poster


Show your parish, ministry group, or community the faces of our brothers in formation for the priesthood in the Archdiocese. There are many answering the call; let your community know it. Pray hard for vocations and help your parish to be well represented with seminarians from your community on this poster.



Seminarian Prayer Card


If you ever wanted to know how you could support our Seminarians best, here is your answer. This prayer card fits easily into a bible, breviary, or journal and allows you to pray for the seminarians by name every day. Each day we will pray together for a couple of our Seminarians, and through the grace of God, together we will support their journey to the priesthood while strengthening their spirit.
