♦ Biking for Vocations – Support Our Men!

The Vocation Office for the Diocesan Priesthood is organizing the 2019 Biking for Vocations pilgrimage. From August 8-12, several seminarians studying at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary will cycle 150 miles and visit ten churches in the Archdiocese in order to raise awareness of vocations to the priesthood and generate support for the seminarians currently in formation. This pilgrimage reflects the diligence and effort involved in discerning and pursuing a vocation. Visiting many churches reminds us that a priestly vocation is not an individual affair, but instead is built on a collective effort of the whole church praying with and for these men. Here’s how you can support their hard work!
