|St. Philip Neri|
I think the people of the parish really love to see so many young priests and seminarians living a life together. They enjoy having them over for dinner, hearing their vocation story, and befriending them. I think the people have a sense that there is something really healthy for their priests to be living a common life together, giving each other a hard time, and seeing them having cookouts in the rectory yard. It's great for people to see all of these regular guys who are priests and seminarians.
I think the visiting priests and seminarians are really touched by how much the people love them, pray for them, and support them. The people here really love priests and seminarians. In fact, in our adoration chapel there are cards whereby people can offer their Holy Hour for a seminarian. I hear all the time from our seminarians from the Archdiocese of Boston, studying in Boston and in Rome how grateful they are to receive these cards all the time.
