Our Seminarians

Fr Daniel SchusterThank you for your interest in the seminarians of our Diocese. They are fine men who desire to serve God and the people of northeastern Wisconsin.

Please pray for these men, that they remain open to the lead of God in their lives. You might want to write or e-mail them from time to time to remind them of your prayers.

Thanks for all you do to support our seminarians, and to encourage vocations to the priesthood and religious life!

If you wish to send a birthday card to them, please see their birth dates below.

Peace and Blessings,

Fr. Schuster
Vocation Director

Please support our seminarians through the Seminarian Collection:  Hope for the Future: Help them Today!

You may make a gift online through the Catholic Foundation.

OurSeminariansBooklet-2015-2016This booklet contains all the information provided below on the men studying for the priesthood in the Diocese of Green Bay.

The intention of this booklet is to serve as a prayer tool.

We want you to both laugh at their light-hearted answers and get to know them through their stories.

We invite you to pray the "Morning Offering for Vocations" each day, and also get to know the saints the seminarians mention.

As you read this booklet and pray during the Year of Mercy, may you be touched by mercy.
