Dear Fathers, Parents, Guardians, Seminarians and Friends,

Praised be Jesus Christ!  Praise God for the 27 vocations we have this coming school year 2012-2013.  In the last ten years, this is our biggest group.  Let us pray for the perseverance of these young men:

We have 18 from the Archdiocese of Lingayen-Dagupan (ALD), 4 from the Diocese of San Fernando de La Union (SFLU), 3 from the Diocese of Urdaneta (DU), 1 each from the Archdiocese of Nueva Segovia (ANS) and Diocese of Alaminos (DA).

The newcomers have undergone a three-day orientation seminar this week (May 31 to June 2) and we congratulate them for their cooperation, openness and determination to respond to the call of God.

Their official entry to the seminary will be on Sunday, the 10th of June 2012 before 10AM.  They have to bring with them their complete uniforms and materials indicated in the list we sent with their acceptance letter from the seminary.  We would also like to remind all parents and benefactors to settle accounts on time.

Every month, the College Seminary holds a Prayer Session for Vocations.  This is a tradition in the seminary where parents and family members, benefactors and friends of the seminarians come together to pray for vocations and celebrate the Eucharist together.  The monthly gathering is usually scheduled on the third Sunday of the Month and it starts promptly at 9AM.  For your guidance, here is the schedule for the first semester:

                Date * Sponsoring Class * Mass Presider * Other Event
                June 24 * Senior Class * Fr. Rector * Meeting of All Parents Guardians (1PM)
                July 22 * Junior Class * Fr. Prefect * Pandaragupan (Sportsfest) PM
                Aug 19 * Freshman Class * Fr. Spiritual Director * Linggo ng Wika (1PM to 3PM)
                Sept 23 * Sophomore Class * Archbishop Soc * Investiture of the Sophomores

We hope that you can mark your calendar early so you can join us on these days.  You may invite your extended family in order to show support for the vocation of your son, and really pray for his vocation.  We also encourage young men who feel God’s call to join us in these Prayer Sessions so that they may already see the place called the “seminary” – the seed-bed of priestly vocation.

Finally, allow me to share with you the Prayer for Vocations by Blessed John Paul II:

Oh Jesus, our Good Shepherd, bless all our parishes with numerous priests, deacons, men and women in religious life, consecrated laity and missionaries, according to the needs of the entire world, which You love and wish to save.  We especially entrust our community to You; grant us the spirit of the first Christians, so that we may be a cenacle of prayer, in loving acceptance of the Holy Spirit and His gifts.  Assist our pastors and all who live a consecrated life.  Guide the steps of those who have responded generously to Your call and are preparing to receive holy orders or to profess the evangelical counsels.

Look with love on so many well disposed young people to follow You.  Help them to understand that in You alone can they attain to complete fulfillment.  To this end we call on the powerful intercession of Mary, Mother and Model of all vocations.  We beseech you to sustain our faith with the certainty that the Father will grant what You have commanded us to ask.  Amen.

Thank you very much for your attention, and we hope to see you soon in our College Seminary.  May Mary, Help of Christians guide us always.

Very truly yours in Christ,

Fr. Mario Dominic C. Sanchez
