This Lenten season we would like to introduce the Institute of Christ the King Seminary Society to our MPBOJ parish by holding a "Sock Drive." Seminarians are only permitted to wear "above the calf black socks." To support our seminarians each family is encouraged to buy a pair of "above the calf black socks” and leave them in the receptacle at the side entrance by March 21, 2021.BlackSock

In the months to come the Seminary Society-Pittsburgh will be creating prayer cards for seminarians, beginning a sponsorship program where families will be matched with a seminarian to pray for him and write letters to him over the course of seminary study. The Seminary Society also conducts fundraisers to benefit the seminary.

You may join the Seminary Society to be contacted for planning and organizing activities by choosing this group in the MPBOJ Flocknote. Text “MPBOJ” to 84576.
