Archbishop Cupich and Fr. Barron welcomed 155 men to the “Who Will Fill These Shoes?” vocation event on Black Friday.  Some came for a second year  to meet our new Archbishop and to hear more about the call to the priesthood.  Archbishop Cupich encouraged them to keep using their imagination as they hear more about the life of seminarians and the priests.

Men ages 16-19 had breakout session led by St. Joseph College Seminarian.  They heard about the Quigley Scholars High School Program and St. Joseph College Seminary.

Men 20 and older had breakout sessions led by Mundelein Seminarians, where they heard about being a seminarian and about two discernment programs: Exploring Priesthood Weekends and INSEARCH Discernment Program.

Fr. Barron also welcomed members of the John Paul II Eucharistic Adoration Association, who brought a Monstrance blessed by St. John Paul II.  Fr. Barron blessed and commissioned them to spend the entire time in Adoration at the Seminary’s John Pal Ii Chapel.  The Seminarians and those discerning were grateful for the prayer support.
