A visit to St. Augustine Seminary

A seminary to many people is an unknown place full of mystery and intrigue. Conversely, even fewer people understand or appreciate what draws men into answering the Lord in the affirmative to enter the seminary to discern if the Lord is indeed calling them to the Priesthood.

True happiness is to discover one's vocation be it religious life, married life, a particular career or single life as to what the Lord is calling one to do with their life.

Our visit to the St. Augustine Seminary in Toronto was a very fruitful one not only for the visiting Timber Wolves and Explorers but also for the seminarians themselves along with seminary staff.

There were much joy and interaction between our FNE boys, the Seminarians, Priests and others. Our visit went by so very quickly.
