It happens about this time of year: vocations directors show up at seminaries for the dreaded (not exactly) evaluations of the young men studying for their dioceses. If this brings them to the Twin Cities AND they know what's good for them, they make a pilgrimage out to the store in order to hunt for theological books.
This week we met Fr. Brian Doerr, along with 7 of the 30 (!) young men from the Diocese of Lafayette (Indiana) studying at St. John Vianney Seminary. There were also 2 other young men who came with Father in order to check out the seminary.
They seem to have enjoyed their time here (note the genuine smiles), and we enjoyed meeting them. We hope the books from our store will serve them well!
