  • The seminary suggests Priestly Holiness, a collection of writings by Archbishop Lefebvre, on the steps which are made to the priesthood each year in the seminary. It contains much spiritual reflection and insight of our founder. It is used by seminarians and has been made available to the faithful.

Let us pray.

O Lord, grant us priests.
O Lord, grant us holy priests.
O Lord, grant us many holy priests.
O Lord, grant us many holy religious vocations.
O Lord, grant us many holy Catholic families.

V.  St. Pius X,
R.  Pray for us.
