I invite you to join me in celebrating National Priesthood Sunday.
Priesthood Sunday is a special day set aside to reflect upon and affirm the vocation of the priesthood in the life of the Church.
I am extremely thankful for our priests and grateful for their service, gifts, and talents.
Please take time to remember a priest who has made a positive impact in your life or the life of your family, and remember them in your prayers. As in years past, we are having a special collection in support of the 27 seminarians preparing to serve the faithful of the Church in Middle Tennessee by continuing the legacy of our current priests and all those who came before them. I extend my sincere thanks to all who have supported the education of our seminarians in the past. Your renewed support will continue to provide for the education and formation of our future priests.
I thank each one of you for considering the positive impact your gift will have on the future of our Diocese of Nashville. No gift is too small, or too large. For those wishing to make your first offering of support, you may wish to consider making an offering of support equal to one week of your regular gifts of support to the Church.
Thank you for your prayerful consideration of my request to honor our priests and to support our seminarians.
With gratitude for your support, I am
Sincerely in Christ,
Most Reverend David R. Choby, D.D., J.C.L. Bishop of Nashville
