The winter meeting is behind us and we are looking to the new born king to come. My question to you all is of the 83 Seminarians (yes, we lost another one): Do we know that we have asked these men to join us? Please ask them. I have done so when I see them home at St. Vincents. They can join for free online using the code SEM2018. A personal touch does work.
Please remember the due date for SOS is April 1st. A side note here is that 100% of the money collected does go out to the Seminarians. No other overhead is done here. I appreciate the councils that adopt a Seminarian via RSVP, but remember we have 83 in the state. So far only about 5 have been adopted via the traditional RSVP. If we all do our part, then when the cancelled check comes we will have 83 adopted.
One last note, on the RSVP form you are saying that you will pray for this Seminarian, hold a prayer service, invite to council meeting, and hold a function for them. We need to make sure the Seminarians know who we are. Don’t forget the men and women who are novices and postulants in Religious Orders. They, too, can be in RSVP. Read the form.
