Today we pray for all of our military veterans and thank them for stepping up and serving, putting their lives on hold and sacrificing time with their families. We pray for healing and peace to all who have been wounded physically, mentally and spiritually.
We recognize our seminarians, alumni, and faculty who have served, including Father Patrick Boyle, S.J. (Army), Father Carlos Rodriguez (Army Reserve), Father Michael Metz (Army), Nick Radloff (Air Force), James Wallace (Coast Guard), Colin Patrick (Army), Evan Glowzinski (Army), Josh Miller (Army), Seth Hostetler (Air Force), Deacon Michael Goodwin (Army Reserves), Tim Berryhill (Army), and Zachary Glick (Air Force).
For our seminarians who are also military veterans, there are many similarities between those two vocations of service. Watch the video below to hear from seminarians who served in the U.S. Army, Coast Guard and Air Force and are now training to be parish priests.
