Plans are underway for special collection for our seminarians, which will take place in all parishes and missions of the Diocese of St. Petersburg in May 2016. The theme for the collection is “Help Us Continue Forming Men of Mercy,” which ties into the Extraordinary Year of Mercy and overall theme of our diocesan vocations promotions for this year.
Seminarians, staff working with our seminarians, and parents of our priests/seminarians will be presenting at Masses over the course of May 7/8 and 14/15. We will also showcase information through pulpit announcements, in bulletins and on the diocesan website. And, as an added communication piece, you can view a video a short video (created by our Pastoral Year seminarians!) to show seminary life and explain the financial funding sources by clicking here.
Parishioners are invited to take a selfie with our presenters and join our social media group by posting on Facebook and tagging the post with:
