Bishop Reed and Bishop Mark join the Putting Challenge

Jul 30, 2020

Saint John’s Seminary has been holding an annual golf tournament for the past eighteen consecutive years. This important event, which raises funds for our operations, had been planned for this coming September. However, due to COVID-19 restrictions which would have been placed on this event and to ensure the safety of all involved, the archdiocese has decided to postpone this year’s tournament. In the meantime, Saint John’s Seminary continues its over century long tradition of forming the next generation of your parish priests. In an effort to raise much needed funds in support of priestly formation, Saint John's Seminary launched the #SJSPuttingChallenge on social media.

The putting challenge not only raises critical funds for our mission of forming the next generation of parish priests, but also raises awareness of the seminary throughout the Archdiocese of Boston and beyond in every diocese which sends seminarians to be educated and formed into parish priests.

Bishop Reed and Bishop Mark recently joined the Putting Challenge to show their support. Bishop Reed challenged Bishop Mark, Fr. Chris Hickey of Holy Mothers Collaborative in Hanover, MA, and Fr. David O'Leary of Good Shepherd Parish in Wayland, MA.

Bishop Mark promptly accepted the challenge. Bishop Mark celebrates his 30 year anniversary of priesthood this year and has challenged his entire ordination class to the SJS Putting Challenge.
