Prayer for Seminarians


Prayer for Seminarians:

O Lord Jesus Christ, great High Priest, I pray that You call many worthy souls to Your holy priesthood. Enlighten the Bishop in the choice of candidates, the Spiritual Director in molding them, and the professors in instructing them. Lead the seminarians daily in Your unerring footsteps; so that they may become priests who are models of purity, possessors of wisdom and heroes of sacrifice; steeped in humility and aflame with love for God and man; apostles of Your glory and sanctifiers of souls.



Mary, Queen of the Clergy, pray for us.

Dear Parish Family,

 My name is Genaro Garza III and I have been a parishioner at St Joseph's since 2011. Upon graduating from chiropractic school in Dallas ,TX, I returned to the Rio Grande Valley residing in Edinburg making St Josephs my home parish.  I have been very blessed to have met many of you through the ministries of Grupo Divina Misericordia, RCIA, Hearts Afire, Legion of Mary, Knights of Columbus, That Man is You, ACTS,  and lector. Through much discernment and prayer I have decided to answer what I believe to be God's call to the priesthood. Our Bishop Daniel Flores has decided to send me to the Pontifical Josephinum College in Columbus, Ohio where I will begin my studies this January. I ask that you please pray for me on my journey and my response to God's call. I specifically ask that you please pray, not necessarily that I become a priest, but that if indeed it is God's Will that I become a priest, then let His Divine Will be done in me. Thank you and may the Lord bless St Josephs Parish and each and everyone of you.
