The JPII Classic Priests vs. Seminarians Basketball Game is back… 

live and in person!


August 6, 2021

at Xavier College Prep

This year, no hotdogs will be served, but we will serve ice cream after the game! 

Immediate family members of seminarians will get free admission to the game.



Effective July 1, Bishop Olmsted has announced the obligation to attend Sunday and Holy Day Masses is restored. We pray our return will provide a deep renewal of our love for Sunday Mass throughout the diocese!

According to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and the National Catholic Bioethics Center, the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines are morally acceptable and viable options for combatting the virus. For the sake of public health and the common good, it is an act of charity to receive licitly produced vaccines. Prayerfully consider getting vaccinated and consult your physician or health care provider for personalized medical information. Please continue to pray for our first responders, medical professionals and public servants who continue to work selflessly throughout this pandemic. Be Healthy -Be Smart -Be Holy:
