The Parents of Priests gather at the seminary for meetings as needed.

Throughout the year Parents of Priests meet:

► In November at the Seminary to celebrate Sunday Mass with the seminary community.  At the brunch that follows Mass, Parents of Priests presents the rectors of Borromeo Seminary and St. Mary Seminary with funds raised through the “25 Club” raffle. 

► In January we gather at a local restaurant for our  “Winter Picnic.”

► On a quarterly basis we come together:

► in July, Parents gather for Mass, followed by their summer picnic.

► at other parishes of the diocese – as announced in the Parents of Priests quarterly newsletter

► In June and October for a board meeting.

Parents and family members pray daily for their priest sons.
