From Jim Agnew:
Hello & Good Afternoon!
When I began to assist with the Extraordinary Form 15 years ago a young John Audino showed me the ropes as I served my first Low Mass on a Sunday afternoon at St. Peter’s.  Beginning in 1999 at eight years old, John has been steadfast in his commitment to the liturgy and our community.   I am pleased to learn that after a period of discernment and discussion; John will be entering seminary formation on September 8 for the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter.
Once formation begins there will be no opportunity to generate an income.   In order to help John meet some of his financial obligations now,  and to help with some of the routine expenses associated with entering the seminary we are happy to provide an opportunity over the next few weeks for our folks to come together and consider making a contribution.  There will be a small box at our luncheons following the 12 pm EF Mass where you may place a contribution.
Thank you for your support, and pray for vocations!
Jim Agnew
