Biking for Vocations!!

Summer 2019 | Special Edition – August
Biking for Vocations – August 2019
Dear Vocation Supporter –


On Thursday, August 8th, several seminarians from St. Charles Borromeo Seminary will kick off the 5-day Biking for Vocations Pilgrimage. Fr. Chris Cooke, Director of the Spiritual Year, will also be joining the seminarians.

Between August 8-12th, the seminarians will cycle 150 miles and visit ten churches in the Archdiocese in order to raise awareness of vocations to the priesthood and generate support for the seminarians currently in formation.

This pilgrimage reflects the diligence and effort involved in discerning and pursuing a vocation. Visiting many churches reminds us that a priestly vocation is not an individual affair, but instead is built on a collective effort of the whole church praying with and for these men.

We hope that many will join us at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary on Thursday, August 8th at 9:00 AM to show support for the seminarians and pray for a safe and fruitful trip. Similarly, all are welcome to join us on Monday, August 12th at 4:30 PM, as we welcome the seminarians back to St. Charles Borromeo Seminary.

Many additional events are open to everyone in the Archdiocese – please see the flyer. 


Additional details, including the seminarians who are riding, a complete itinerary, and video footage are available on our website at In addition, please follow us on social media – FacebookInstagram, and Twitter – throughout the Pilgrimage!

Thank you for your support and helping to create a culture of vocations in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia!
