Priesthood / Seminarians
What is the priesthood?
Simply, it is following Christ's example to serve his people. The priesthood serves in particular by bringing others to Christ through the sacraments. They can offer our prayers to God by the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and lead us to communion with God through the Eucharist. "The Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many." (Matthew 20:28)
Who are Seminarians?
Seminarians are men who attend a seminary with the Priesthood in mind. They study to grow in four areas; human, spiritual, pastoral, and intellectual. At the seminary they grow in relationship to our Lord by praying, going to daily Mass and confession, and learning about theology and philosophy.
God calls you to make definitive choices, and He has a plan for each of you: to discover that plan and to respond to your vocation is to move toward personal fulfilment.Pope Francis
