The Diocese of Dallas has a record number of 19 new seminarians, Bishop Kevin Farrell announced recently.
“Indeed the Holy Spirit has been working through parents, priests and our vocations staff to bring about this blessing for our diocese. The prayers of many have been answered,” the Bishop of Dallas said on his blog Aug. 19.
The number is an increase from last year, when 11 men entered seminary. Fifteen of the new seminarians come from the Diocese of Dallas.
“It is great to have some good news to report these days and a record number of 19 new seminarians is certainly good news,” Bishop Farrell said.
