Holy Hour for Vocations: ‘Beautiful and Moving’

NORWALK—On November 14, the faithful joined Fr. John Connaughton and seminarians of the diocese to spend an hour in Adoration of Jesus, and to pray for vocations at St. Ladislaus Church in Norwalk.

“It was an amazing Holy Hour, a grace-filled night. The church was filled to capacity with people standing everywhere. Fr. Abelardo Vasquez, assistant vocations director, presided and Fr. Juan Acosta did a great job along with his team both in church and afterwards with refreshments and hors d’oeuvres. We thank him for his leadership,” said Msgr. Walter C. Orlowski, VF, KCHS, dean of Deanery G, Mother of Divine Grace.

“As so many people said to me, ‘This was beautiful and moving. We need to do this more often,’” remarked Msgr. Orlowski.

St. John Fisher Seminary is an initiative of the Diocese of Bridgeport to prepare college-aged men and young adults for entrance into major seminary and eventual ordination to the Catholic priesthood.  Founded in 1989 by Most Rev. Edward M. Egan, the third bishop of Bridgeport, the St. John Fisher Seminary program exists to provide young men with a place in which they can come to a deeper relationship with Christ Jesus as they discern whether He is calling them to His priesthood.
