The diocese is offering a Seminary Weekend for men 16-25 years of age form April 13th to April 15th. Father Altonji, Assistant Vocations Director, will travel with the men to the Pontifical College Josephinum in Columbus, Ohio, where they will experience seminary life, and attend the Diaconate Ordination of Justin Ward. Bishop Baker, Father Rick, and all of our diocesan seminarians will also be at the seminary that weekend. This would be a great opportunity for men who are discerning Priesthood to talk with Bishop Baker, our Priests in the Vocations Office, and our seminarians about Priesthood and seminary life, as well as witness a diaconate ordination. There is no cost to attend, but registration is required. The registration deadline is March 28th.
