Religious Order

Seminarians

These men are in religious formation for various religious orders. They are ​either originally from the state of Idaho, or they are in formation in Idaho, or ​they have family ties to Idaho.

Heavenly Father, Your divine Son taught us to pray to the Lord of the harvest to ​send laborers into His vineyard.


We earnestly beg You to bless our diocese and our world with many priests and ​religious men and women who will love You fervently, and gladly and ​courageously spend their lives in service to your Son’s Church under the ​guidance of the holy Spirit.


We pray that their lives may be always centered on our Eucharistic Lord; that ​they be always faithful to the Holy Father; and that they may be devoted sons an ​daughters of Mary, our Mother, in making You known and loved; and that all ​may attain Heaven.


Bless our families and our children and choose from our homes those whom You ​desire for this holy work.


We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
