Come and See!


“What are you looking for?  Come and see.” John 1:38-39

These words of invitation to the first disciples still speak to us today. Are you wondering if you are being called to priestly ministry?

Bishop Bernard Hebda and Father Don Geyman, Director of Vocations, cordially invite all adult men 18 and up who are  interested in learning more about the Priesthood to a “Come & See Weekend.” The weekend will begin at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, June 28, at the Hampton Inn in Gaylord and will include time to visit and socialize with Bishop Hebda, Fr. Don, and other priests and seminarians of the diocese. Participants will also attend the Ordination to the Priesthood of Deacons Bryan Medlin and Matthew Furgiuele on Saturday at 11:00 a.m. at St. Mary Cathedral.
