Council Announcements

Here is information about our two new Seminarians that we are sponsoring

 

  Robert Lawson (2023)

Hello, I'm Robbie Lawson, a Senior in Cardinal Glennon College, studying for the Archdiocese of St. Louis. I am the middle child of three, with a sister nine years older, and a brother nine years younger. I graduated from Duchesne High School and Holy Trinity Grade School. My home parish is Holy Trinity in St. Ann. I enjoy the arts, especially music, as well as sciences.
I first felt called to the priesthood by seeing the great examples of priests at my parish like Msgr. Leykam, Fr. Ochoa, Fr. Houser, as well as Fr. Wetmore, Fr. Niemann, and Msgr. Blood. Seeing the happiness and joy they brought to people made me want to do the same. I still remember in grade school, how Msgr. Leykam would come visit each grade and give us crosses on ribbons; it was moments like that which solidified my call.

 

  Michael Laugeman (2025)

Hi, my name is Michael Laugeman. I am a Junior in Cardinal Glennon College studying for the Archdiocese of St. Louis. I have been a parishioner at Immaculate Conception Dardenne Prairie my entire life. There, I live with my older brother, Jacob, and my two loving parents. I attended grade school at ICD before going to High School at St. Dominic, where I graduated in May, 2017.

It was during this time I began to really grow in my relationship with the Lord. I continued to fall in love with God and grew in the ability to put my trust in Him. It was through that trust and prayer I received an abundance of peace and joy. I knew that God was calling me to the seminary to further discern a vocation to the priesthood.  I am confident that I am in the right place to find out what God is calling me to do.

Please pray for me and all seminarians as we strive to conform our hearts to Christ!
