The exciting proposition of these seven men entering the priesthood is their future spiritual and apostolic impact throughout the Archdiocese. And how many young men will they inspire to discern, pray, and consider God’s vocation to the sacrament of Holy Orders? Through God’s grace, the fruits of World Youth Day 1993 will continue to pour forth through young men planting their flags in the ground for Christ and His Church.
