Melissa and Rick Sapio

“We consider it a privilege to serve in any way we can for Holy Trinity Seminary. Being honorary co-chairs for a virtual gathering has been a challenge, but we are hopeful that you will be as touched as we are by the incredible seminarians who are willing to answer the call to serve God in the role of priests for us. This year, as you meet them virtually, we ask that you continue to be as generous as you have been in the past in helping to provide for their formation. May God bless you and thanks for Answering the Call.”

The Most Reverend
J. Douglas Deshotel
Bishop of Lafayette

“Holy Trinity Seminary was my home for six years as a student and then later six years on the faculty as Vice-Rector. I have very fond memories of both tours of duty. As a student, I received excellent formation in preparation for the priesthood. Both the spiritual formation at the seminary and the academic formation I received at the University of Dallas, gave me skills that have served me in my forty-two years as a priest and ten years as Bishop. I shall always treasure the happy times I spent there, the community life of the seminary and the life-long friendships that I formed. I pray that all the seminarians who attend have the same wonderful experience that I did. God bless you Holy Trinity Seminary and keep up the wonderful work of forming future shepherds for the Church.”

Click here to listen to seminarians Christian Hamrick, Cameron Kologinczak, Preston Thompson and Nick Weiss, who were recently the featured guests on the Interview of the Week radio show hosted by Dave Palmer, Executive Director of KATH 910 AM.  In addition to sharing their personal vocation stories, the seminarians discussed the upcoming Spes Gregis Benefit.

THANK YOU to our Sponsors and Donors.
