Adam Bauer has been accepted as a seminarian for the Diocese of Wilmington. He will be attending St. Mary’s Seminary (Baltimore) in the fall. We rejoice with his parents, Bob & Nancy, who nurtured his vocation in their domestic Church and we are thankful to them for the gift that they have fostered in his soul.
While Adam has been part of our community as an Altar Server and Knight of Columbus, he will be more visible in our parish as the months and years progress. This summer he will be present at Masses, meetings and around the Campus doing many and varied tasks.
Please keep him in your prayers.
