Mission of St. John Fisher Seminary Residence
John Paul II once said “it is Jesus who stirs in
you the desire to do something great with your lives.” Certainly,
a vocation to the Roman Catholic priesthood is one of those

training, they deepen their baptismal call to be disciples
of Jesus and faithful Catholic men in the midst of culture
