Support our seminarians to answer
God’s call to the priesthood
PLEASE GIVE GENEROUSLY TO THE BISHOP’S GOOD SHEPHERD APPEAL
Our future shepherds and disciples of Jesus Christ
In the Diocese of Parramatta, our Holy Spirit Seminary, Harris Park provides the education and formation required for young men to prepare to enter the priesthood. Seminarians and priests are essential to the life of our Church. As our Diocese expands, we must be prepared to meet the needs of our faith community.
During the years of training at Holy Spirit Seminary, seminarians take part in human, spiritual, intellectual and pastoral formation. While there is a focus on daily prayer and contemplation as well as theological and philosophical study and discussion, these young men also spend time on subjects such as sports, music and public speaking.
Please help support our seminarians, so they can be formed to do God’s work

“Priestly vocations are nurtured and formed in the womb of the family, the womb of the seminary, but also the womb of the larger Catholic community here in the Diocese.
We all have a part to play, we all have a mothering role to play, indeed, in this process, to contribute to the formation and growth of these young men into those stewards and nurturers of God’s alternative community of faith, hope and love.
May the grace of God the Father and the Holy Spirit be with you and your loved ones.”
Bishop Vincent Long OFM Conv
