Hope Springs Eternal (Vocation Office Update)

Recently a vocation prospect named David Brickman (pictured) visited our friars in PA and WV. David had an excellent visit and wanted me to relay his thanks to all the friars who received him with such graciousness and hospitality. Please keep David in your prayers. Regarding the "goings on" in the vocation office, I am currently processing the applications of Corey Smoot and Bob Haw. They are making application for postulancy in the fall. Additionally, we have invited three persons to join our aspirancy program (two others are interested and may be invited depending on how their initial visits go in May and September). The names of those who are interested are Gerry, Daniel, Pierre, Octavio, and Jason. Please keep them in prayer as well. Hope "springs" eternal! (pun intended). Thanks to all the friars once again in PA and WV for making such a good impression on David! Blessings, Fr. Pat
