Meet our Seminarians
The Diocese of Palm Beach Office of Vocations is excited to start a new initiative in support of its seminarians called “Meet our Seminarians.” The journey to become a dedicated priest who will administer the sacraments is an important one, and the Diocese is honored to have ten men who are dedicating themselves to this important journey of understanding their calling.
Every Wednesday, the Office of Vocations will showcase one of its seminarians on Facebook and this page. We encourage you to pray for these seminarians during their process of discernment.
