Dear Friends,

This is the first in a series of emails you will receive from Saint John's Seminary, wishing you a blessed Lent and Easter season. It is our aim to provide valuable Lenten resources for our constituents, as well as a glimpse into how our seminarians - your future parish priests - celebrate this most Holy season. We invite you to include the seminarians here at Saint John's in your Lenten observances over the next forty days by praying for them, fasting with them, and incorporating them into your almsgiving with a symbolic gift of support towards their formation and education.

May our Lenten observance rely on the renewal God is working in us all - making us aware of our need for conversion and repentance, and more importantly directing our attention towards greater union with his Son, and motivating us toward greater love and concern for our neighbor.

Learn more below and visit to meet the very seminarians who pray for you each day!

Wishing you God's blessing and peace,
Rev. Stephen E. Salocks '80
Interim Rector, Saint John's Seminary
