We are truly blessed to have seven young seminarians who are continuing with their studies at Holy Spirit Ukrainian Catholic Seminary in Edmonton, AB. Two are from our Eparchy of Saskatoon, Matthew Lashyn and Jonathan Lashyn; two are from the Archeparchy of Winnipeg, Ivas Babick and Alex Pankiw, and three from the Eparchy of Edmonton, Volodymyr-Ivan Babiak, Julian Savaryn and Orion Wiebe. Please pray for all the seminarians, as they continue their studies for the priesthood.
Please continue to pray for vocations to the priesthood and all religious communities of men and women.
LORD of the Harvest,
BLESS young people with the gift of courage to respond to your call. Open their hearts to great ideals, to great things.
INSPIRE all of your disciples to mutual love and giving— for vocations blossom in the good soil of faithful people.
INSTILL those in religious life, parish ministries, and families with the confidence and grace to invite others to embrace the bold and noble path of a life consecrated to you.
UNITE us to Jesus through prayer and sacrament, so that we may cooperate with you in building your reign of mercy and truth, of justice and peace. Amen.
— Pope Francis
