Let Us Pray for Our Seminarians
Memphis, Tenn. – Each year our Catholic Diocese of Memphis seminarians get together for a diocesan retreat. This year has been taking place from June 17-19 at Our Lady Queen of Peace (OLQP) in Stanton, Tenn.
We currently have 20 young men in formation towards the priesthood–surrendering their lives to the service of our Diocesan Church. May God bless them and keep them.
After the retreat, Priests and Seminarians will come together for their Annual Summer Gathering celebration. This year it will coincide with the Solemnity of The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, and the celebration of the World Day of Prayer for the Sanctification of Clergy.
The celebration will include a private Mass (only priests and seminarians) this evening, Friday, June 19, 5:00pm at OLPH Catholic Church in Germantown, which will be live-streamed for the public on OLPH’s Facebookpage.
At the Mass, Bishop David P. Talley will admit four of our seminarians into candidacy for the Holy Orders: John Griffith, Andy Madeksho, Rolando Perez and Andrew Raffanti.
