This upcoming week is finals week for the Conception seminarians, some of our seminarians at other seminarians have just wrapped up their semester, while others still have a ways to go (I’m thinking of Jason Doke over in Rome). Seeing as that is the case, posting will be minimal as we buckle down and prepare for exams and put the finishing touches on papers. Please keep us in your prayers, that we can remain focused and positive during what will likely be a stressful week.
Secondly, I’d like to thank all those who have visited this blog over the course of this academic year, we recently crossed the 5,000 visitor mark. Many thanks for your support and prayers.
This summer some of the seminarians will be working in parishes, others will have other jobs in and outside of the diocese. Over the summer I’ll try to post on how things are going, as pastoral formation in the parish setting is a very important aspect of our overall priestly formation. However, I’d love to get some feedback from you, the readers.
What types of posts have you liked the most? What types of posts would you like to see more of in the future? Is there something else that is different and hasn’t been touched on so far in our postings? What do I mean by the different “types” of posts? We have posts that are longer and involve deep reflections on powerful experiences such as NCYC, the March for Life, or summer service camps. There are also short posts about seminary activities like May Day and Coffee Shop. As well as other short reflections on readings, poems, articles, and experiences. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated, if we have your feedback,then we can make the site better, and continue to promote and create a culture of vocations in our diocese.
Please feel free to continue to share our site with anyone and everyone you know. Please keep us in your prayers during our continued discernment as we will do the same for all those who read these pages, and support us with their prayers.
