Turn the volume on! Here’s the Diocese of Lansing seminarians in fine voice as they sing a rousing rendition of the anthem, “Rise Up, O Men of God”.
Rise up, O men of God!
Have done with lesser things.
Give heart and soul and mind and strength
To serve the King of Kings.
The seminarians gathered at Saint Francis Retreat Center in DeWitt 18-21 August for four days of prayer, study and fraternity. At present the Diocese of Lansing has 28 men in formation for the sacred priesthood.
The weekend in DeWitt concluded with a dinner hosted by Bishop Boyea for those currently discerning a call to seminary life and, Deo volente, the priesthood. In total, 50 young men were in attendance. Please keep them, and our beloved seminarians, in your prayers in the months to come.
Saint Charles Borromeo, patron of seminarians, pray for them!
