Pass the Word 2018 Photo - website

Our now 21st Pass the Word program at St. Mary’s Seminary in Baltimore, MD will be on Tuesday, February 27. On this day, young men of high school age throughout our diocese have been invited to reflect on the gift of a priestly vocation with Bishop Malooly, our priests, seminarians, and the Diocesan Vocations’ Staff.

If you have been invited by Bishop Malooly or nominated by someone and are interested in learning more about priestly life and the seminary experience, we would be happy to have you join us for the day.

Please register here to attend Pass the Word.

Jesus turned and saw them following him and said to them, “What are you looking for?” They said to him, “Rabbi… where are you staying?” He said to them,

Come and Seek

Come and Seek (CAS) is a monthly gathering for men interested in learning more about the vocation to the Diocesan Priesthood. If you think you might be called to the Priesthood, you’re invited to socialize, talk, and hang out with priests and men like yourself who think the Lord might be calling them to be a Priest.

All meetings begin at 6:30 pm, unless otherwise noted and food is provided. There are two locations one in the North of our Diocese and another in the South. For upcoming CAS dates and more information, click here

Good Shepherd - Website

            Heavenly Father, in every age, You call men
            to serve at Your altar as Your priests
            and servants of Your people to witness to the Gospel
            and to be like Your Son, the Great High Priest.
            Through the intercession of St. Francis de Sales,
            Patron Saint of the Diocese of Wilmington,
            please grant our Diocese many good and holy priests;
            Help me to discern what You want for my life,
            and always give me the courage to say Yes to You.
            May I not lose heart in considering my own weaknesses,
            but be willing to answer Your call,
            so You might fulfill your designs in me
            and I might accomplish Your Holy Will.  Amen.

 

            Holy Mary, Mother of Priests, pray for us! 
            St. Francis de Sales, pray for us!
            St. John Vianney, pray for us!
