Those of us who have a copy of the Diocesan year-book and have explored its many mysteries, already know of these gentlemen. Many, in a spirit of grave charity, have entered these names into their daily prayers. Indeed, we must pray for all our clergy, the men in the seminaries, as well as for more men to answer the call of service to the Church as priests, deacons and religious.
