OMOS Parishioner Resumes Seminary Education and Formation


The Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown is happy to welcome back Neil Brett as a diocesan seminarian.

Brett, a member of Our Mother of Sorrows Parish in Johnstown, resumed his priestly education and formation at Saint Mary’s Seminary and University in Baltimore this fall semester after taking a little time off for continued discernment outside of the seminary setting.

With his return, five men are in formation for the diocesan priesthood this academic year.  Besides Brett, they include Deacon Justin Treon of Saint Aloysius Parish in Cresson; Jacob Gindhart, a parishioner of Queen of Peace in Patton; John Roy, a member of Saint Andrew Parish in Johnstown; and Max Kroell, a parishioner of Saint John the Evangelist in Bellefonte.

Please pray for our seminarians and all those discerning a priestly vocation.
