On Wednesday, August 5, at Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Scottsdale, the first ever JP2 Classic for Vocations Awareness will be played. The seminarians of the Diocese of Phoenix will be taking on the Priests of the Diocese of Phoenix. Admission is free. T-shirts and Concessions will be available. Tip-off is set for 6:30pm.
For those of you who follow my blog consistently, you know how much I appreciate and love the Catholic Priesthood and have written on it many times. To read my previous posts, check out the link above. In recent years, the numbers of seminarians have continued to grow not only here in the Diocese of Phoenix, but throughout the United States. Let us continue to pray that young men will answer the call to give their lives to the Catholic Priesthood. To learn more about the Priesthood in the Diocese of Phoenix, check out the Vocations Page.
If you are in the Phoenix metro area on August 5, I would highly encourage you to attend this game. To get more information, find out who is playing, and to RSVP, check out the Facebook event page here.
I will be there in support of my priests, who are playing in the game – Fr. Will Schmid, Fr. Ishaya Samaila, and Fr. Chris Axline.
My prediction, which you heard here first – Priests Win by 5, even though Ian Wintering is predicting a blow out by the seminarians.
