The Beginning

Welcome! This blog is a creation of the seminarians of the Diocese of Sacramento, California and hopefully will serve as a means to help those discerning a call to the priesthood to understand what this life entails and methods to continue in that discernment process. As well, we hope this serves as a contact point for those interested in the life of seminarians as well as a chance for us seminarians to find out what is going on in the lives of our brother seminarians. As I will get into at a later date, we currently total more than 30 seminarians spread out at four different seminaries across the globe, including 3 different countries and 2 states.

Hopefully, as this blog continues, we hope to show you what life is like inside our seminaries, how each of us has discerned this calling to become a priest, what it takes to be a priest, and so on. We hope you will have the courage to ask questions and consider more deeply this mysterious vocation that men starting 2,000 years ago continue to answer each and everyday. As well, feel free to email any of the seminarians that post any questions you may have as we know the process of discernment and even general questions about formation and priestly life are many.

We encourage you to spread this blog around as we hope to be of some help as we continue to pray that more men would take up the call to priesthood and trust that God will provide those chosen for this great harvest.

We entrust this blog into the hands of our Blessed Mother, guardian of all priestly vocations, and ask that through her intercession and the intercession of the patron saint of all diocesan priests, St. John Vianney, that the Lord may use this blog to bring more men to answer the call to serve God and His Church.
