Annual Priesthood Retreat For High School Seniors, College And Post College Age Men

This annual event will take place on Friday and Saturday, January 1011, 2020, at the Seminary of Our Lady of Providence. Participants will have an opportunity to be in a quiet atmosphere of prayer and reflection. As the recent Diocese of Providence Pastoral Profile has disclosed, the number of priests in active ministry has significantly decreased from 216 in 2000 to 134 in 2018, and the number may be lower this past year. Every Catholic who is concerned about the future of the church in this Diocese needs to be proactive in encouraging vocations to the priesthood. If you are aware of any young man who you believe would make good candidate please contact Father Ed as soon as possible. Let’s all pray for and encourage vocations!
