Engage in an illuminating panel discussion.

Elevate Your Faith
- While we often hear calls for prayers to nurture vocations to the priesthood, let us also recognize the pivotal role of seminaries. These institutions are the very crucibles shaping the future of our beloved Church.

Connect the Dots - Dive deep into thought-provoking conversations led by a panel of dedicated individuals encompassing laity, clergy, and seminarians. Uncover the profound connection between the seminary's mission and the vitality of each parish.

The Heartbeat of Our Faith
- As devout Catholics, we share a sacred bond through the transformative power of the sacraments. The Eucharist, our spiritual cornerstone, unites us all. Discover how the Eucharist forms the beating heart of both seminary life and the vibrancy of each parish.

Register today and be part of this extraordinary experience to deepen your faith, strengthen your community ties, and provide insights into the spiritual journey of seminarians.

Liz Cotrupi

Liz is first and foremost, a daughter of God. She is married to her best friend, Tony, and enjoys his help with preparing couples for marriage. She has three adult children and loves being “Nana” to her grandkids. Liz started serving in ministry when her children were small as many moms do. Eventually, her pastor asked her to run the high school faith formation program. Equipped with a bachelor’s degree in business from Worcester State College, she knew she needed more theology. After certificates in catechesis and youth ministry, she moved on to get her Master of Theological Studies from Saint John’s Seminary. Before coming to the Archdiocese of Boston in 2016, Liz was the director of youth and young adult ministry for the Worcester Diocese. She has been blessed to serve on team for Cursillo, lead pilgrimages to Marian sites, and mission trips locally and abroad.
