Biking for Vocations

In August, 2019, a group of seminarians completed a biking pilgrimage throughout the Archdiocese of Philadelphia to bring awareness of vocations. 

In August 2020, two more groups of seminarians will take to the roads and traverse the Archdiocese as they spread awareness that God is still calling men to the priesthood!

Details on the 2020 pilgrimage will be shared as they become available.  In the interim, below are updates from last year's pilgrimage.
