Biking for Vocations
Biking for Vocations 2021 is an exciting five day pilgrimage designed to raise awareness of vocations to the priesthood and vocational discernment, as well as to generate support for the seminarians currently in formation.

In 2019, this new initiative started with eight bikers and one route, and has grown to two routes and 10 bikers, plus a few special guests! This year, the bikers will be leaving St. Charles Borromeo Seminary and heading into two separate directions, traversing separate parts of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, with one group also cycling into the Diocese of Allentown!

Both of these pilgrimages include visits to parishes where the seminarians will participate in Holy Hours, panel discussions, Mass and give their vocation stories.

Meet the Riders of 2021!
