Bishop Reed and Bishop Mark join the SJS Putting Challenge!
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 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 and lay leaders. Your Seminarians are currently dispersed for the summer throughout local dioceses and assisting in local parishes like yours. Since our work continues, of course our operating expenses also remain. The funds which would have been raised during this tournament will be missed. There is still an opportunity for you to make a difference and help your seminary.
So, I challenge YOU to take the Saint John’s Seminary Putting Challenge, here is how:
1.) Accept the Challenge - Film yourself taking the Saint John’s Seminary Putting Challenge by stating which challenge you accept:
One and Done - you agree to donate to Saint John’s Seminary and if you miss the 10-foot putt, you will double the donation.
Per Stroke - you agree to donate a certain amount for each putt it takes to "sink" the putt.
2.) Take your putt(s)
3.) Challenge 2 other people to take the Saint John’s Seminary Putting Challenge
4.) Post this message and your video to social media. Be sure to tag Saint John’s Seminary (@SJSBoston) and your friends and include the link to our website:
