Seminarians

by David B. Valdivia

Thank you for your interest in the seminarians of our Diocese of Yakima. They are fine men who desire to serve God and  the people of Central Washington. Please pray for these men, that they remain open to the lead of God in their lives. You might want to write or e-mail them from time to time to remind them of your prayers.

Thanks for all you do to support our seminarians, and to encourage vocations to the priesthood and religious life!

If you wish to send a birthday card to them, please see their birth dates below.
