‘Your sons, your brothers, your friends’

First slide

Arlington Bishop Paul S. Loverde celebrated Mass to welcome seminarians and their families at St. Mary of Sorrows Church in Fairfax Aug. 1. Following Mass, a picnic lunch was served, hosted by the Serra Club and the Knights of Columbus.

In his homily (see page 8), Bishop Loverde asked the families to pray for those studying for the priesthood. He reminded the seminarians to always seek "only what is God's will" during their time of discernment.
