Important Announcements


Reception of the Tonsure:

This week our dear Abbé Raymond is heading to Europe for his retreat before receiving the tonsure,

first of the Minor Orders, at our Seminary in Florence Italy on July 2nd.


Please pray for Abbe Raymond Schmidt:

O Holy Ghost, Spirit of Wisdom and Divine Love, impart Your Knowledge, Understanding, and Counsel to young men that they may follow the vocation wherein they will best serve God. Give them courage and strength to follow God's holy will. Guide their uncertain steps, strengthen their resolutions, shield their chastity, fashion their minds, conquer their hearts, and lead them to the vineyards where they will labor in God's holy service. Amen.


Priestly Ordinations:


Prayer for our future priests that soon will be giving us the sacraments, teaching us the true faith and accompanying us on the way to Heaven.

O Jesus, I pray for your faithful and fervent priests; for your unfaithful and tepid priests; for your priests laboring at home or abroad in distant mission fields; for your tempted priests; for your lonely and desolate priests; for your young priests; for your dying priests; for the souls of your priests in purgatory.

But above all, I recommend to you the priests dearest to me: the priest who baptized me; the priests who absolved me from my sins; the priests at whose Masses I assisted and who gave me your Body and Blood in Holy Communion; the priests who taught and instructed me; all the priests to whom I am indebted in any other way (especially …). O Jesus, keep them all close to your heart, and bless them abundantly in time and in eternity. Amen.
