Hello St. John XXIII!


Now that I am back from homeless ministry in Dayton, Ohio, I am officially done with my first year of seminary formation! This last year was centered on the human and spiritual dimensions of formation. The goal was to form me into a man of prayer who attracts others towards Christ rather than repelling them.

I praise God for the many ways he has bettered me in the last 11 months! Of course, I must also thank you for your support. Without this parish family on my side, I would not be where I am today.

Please keep me in your prayers as I continue discerning our Father’s will for me. I hope to see you more often this summer!

In Christ’s peace,

Finnegan Ritter
