Newsletter – Fourth Sunday of Easter (Good Shepherd Sunday) Year B.

ai generated, jesus, shepherd

Message from Rector of Holy Spirit Seminary, Banyo. From Fr Neil Muir.
Dear Friends,

I had the privilege of meeting with Peter Doherty just before his ordination to priesthood earlier this year — something he said resonated with me, and I’d like to share it with you. He mentioned that he had been a donor to the seminary before he ever considered becoming a priest, and that it was through the information concerning what the seminary program is about that he began envisioning himself here, being formed as a shepherd for God’s people.

I find this inspirational. We need to know that we form future priests not just when we actively seek to build vocations but also when we communicate with donors and supporters.

With this in mind, I am happy to present you with this year’s Holy Spirit Seminary prayer calendars and posters. I would be grateful if you could share these with your parishioners and ask them to consider praying daily for each seminarian by name. I know your prayers will make a difference as they walk the path to the priesthood.

As an update, with the ordinations of Isaac, Minje and Gerard in June last year, I’m thrilled to report that we have welcomed four new seminarians this year, and, as mentioned above, just recently celebrated the ordination of Peter Doherty to priesthood – a momentous day for all of us and especially so for the Diocese of Rockhampton.

Please know that you are always included in the daily prayers of seminarians and staff at Holy Spirit Seminary. We are so grateful for your continued support, and we pray that God will bless you abundantly for your generosity.
Yours fraternally in Christ
Fr Neil Muir. Rector [Dated: 13th March 2024]
