On Sunday, August 7th at 6pm, the Men In Black team of priests and seminarians will play a softball game against the parish of St. James in Syracuse to raise vocation awareness. The game will be held across from the parish at Meachem Field (CLICK HERE FOR DIRECTIONS).
As parishes combine and the number of priests in the diocese decreases, it is important for young people to see that priesthood is a healthy and fun option for their lives. Most people only meet their parish priest at church on Sundays. This game is aimed at opening their eyes to new possibilities, and creating a positive environment where they can say yes to the call of God. Choosing priesthood today can be a difficult choice, but it is much easier if family and friends support that decision. Fun for the whole family. Admission is free!
