Here are some observations about parishes that have priestly vocations:
-Parishoners love their priests, and they are not afraid to express it.
-The Parish is prayerful and active.
-Parishoners identify men who would make good Diocesan Priests, and they encourage them to consider a vocation to the priesthood.
-Their faith is not just about Sunday. They are committed to live out their faith in the world.

care packages for Diocesan of Scranton seminarians in the
fall of 2015.
-There is a zeal for the Sacrament of Reconciliation and Eucharistic Adoration.

weekdays for the entire Williamsport area.
-There is a love for the Diocese and the Universal Church. Faith is bigger than my Parish.
