Pictured above are the Seminarians, and those applying, for the Diocese of Raleigh, along with Fr. Shlesinger (Director of Vocations) on the left, recently ordained Fr. DeCandia in middle back row, and His Excellency Bishop Burbidge in the front. The photo was taken during the annual seminarians beach retreat. God willing all these young men, as well as three others will be in seminary in the fall. This will be the first year that most of our seminarians will be attending the same seminary - and the first year that any of our seminarians will be attending St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Philadelphia. Please keep them all in your prayers!
Not bad for a "mission" Diocese.
