Thank you for your support to the Good Shepherd Society for Priestly Vocations! We appreciate your continued support of seminarian education in the Diocese of Springfield in Illinois. Your support is sustaining 15 young men in seminary, and they are grateful for your continued prayers. With God's grace, we hope to welcome five of these men to the priesthood on May 25, 2024. Please continue to pray for these young men, their families, and home parishes as they prepare for the next steps in their journey to the priesthood.

We have organized a special "Sneak Peek" of an upcoming episode of Dive Deep, the podcast of the Diocese of Springfield in Illinois. On this episode, host Andrew Hansen is joined by the director of the Office for Vocations, Fr. Brian Alford, to discuss the role of discernment and prayer in the vocations journey. Fr. Alford also brings to light what the vocations journey looks like, breaking down how our seminarians are supported and how we as laity can support vocation discernment. We hope you enjoy the podcast, and we are grateful for your continued support!
