Seminarians

In the Diocese of Metuchen, our seminarians are men, both young and young-at-heart, who come from a great variety of backgrounds. Some are 'native' to our diocese; others come to us from places like Colombia. Their interests and personalities vary and, yet, all of them have great faith -- a faith that has led them to answer God's call to service in the Church.

Please continue to pray for our seminarians, who study at a number of different seminaries, that each of them will one day be of service to the Church of Metuchen. They are:
