Pray for Our Seminarians about to Be Ordained
The Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis Office of Vocations is happy to announce upcoming ordinations, which will be livestreamed from the Cathedral of St. Paul! Diaconal Ordination for seminarians completing Theology III will be held on May 23 at 10 AM. This year’s class included St. Michael native Josh Salonek, who will be ordained a transitional deacon and begin his final year of preparation for priestly ordination. Presbyteral Ordination will be at 10 AM on Saturday, May 30. Our teaching parish seminarian Deacon Tim Tran will be ordained on that day. Please lift both men and all our seminarians up in prayer in the coming weeks. For more information on the livestream for these events, visit 10000vocations.org/ordination-2020.html.
Pray for COVID-19 Patients, Priests and Healthcare Workers
COVID-19 patients, healthcare workers and priests can use your prayers! Check out the link before to sign up for text notifications when Archdiocesan priests are requested for an anointing or when an area healthcare worker requests prayer. Let's lift them up together! Details are at archspm.org/covid19/covid19prayers/.
