Seminarians in Tornado Relief

While most of our seminarians are in parishes this summer, a number are also attending the Institute for Priestly Formation in Omaha, Nebraska.  

Following the recent tornados in northern Nebraska, our own Eric Silva and Will Sexton joined Victor Andreozzi (Pope St. John XXIII National Seminary) in assisting with the cleanup from these terrible storms.  These three seminarians are shown here working on a  three hundred acre corn and soybean farm in Wakefield, Nebraska where they walked the fields clearing debris. Thankfully the farmer's family was unharmed and their house only had minor damage, although they lost close to a million dollars in equipment and several barns.
