On the 27th of each month, join Catholics across the region in reciting this prayer for the continued success of Saint John's Seminary.
The patron saint of Saint John's Seminary is St. John the Evangelist whose feast day is celebrated on December 27th.
As a community united in prayer, we choose to hold the 27th of each month in special regard as a day of prayer for the mission of Saint John's Seminary. Each month we call to mind an aspect of our mission as we pray for the success of our critical work for the Church.
Prayer for Saint John’s Seminary
O God, our heavenly Father, who so loved the world that you gave your only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him may not perish but may have eternal life: watch over Saint John’s Seminary and the community gathered in the study of your holy teaching, that they may be rightly formed for so great a service. Father of all holiness, we pray that those whom you have entrusted to this seminary to be formed as messengers of the Gospel and ministers of the altar, will learn through prayer the truths they must someday teach, and will grasp with the conviction of faith the mysteries their lives must exemplify. Grant, we pray, that through this seminary your disciples might be holy, know your truth, and reflect your glory on earth. All this we ask through Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever. Amen.
