  • Southern Tier Vocation Event Draws Large Crowd

    On Wednesday, December 27 All Saints Parish in Corning hosted a vocation event for men interested in the priesthood. About twenty five men braved the frigid temperatures and attended, including Rochester seminarians Aaron Kelly, Gregory Sheffield, and Sean Bassler. The comments and answers given by these men were excellent, and all agreed to do continue this tradition next year. Please pray those in attendance will know God’s will for their lives.

    Do you know someone who would make a good priest? Please encourage them to contact Fr. Matthew Jones or Fr. Peter Van Lieshout, Co-Directors of Priesthood Vocation Awareness, today!
