Baptist 041.jpgOver the years New Haven area Catholics have nurtured the vocations of many men to the priesthood or religious life. In the coming days I am hoping to write more about those who have said “yes” to the Lord in His call to religious life and priesthood. But for the moment let me note here those from the New Haven area that are studying for a religious order or a diocese:

Ken Dagliere, Archdiocese of Hartford, Holy Apostles Seminary, Cromwell, CT
James Onofrio, Archdiocese of Hartford, Neumann House, St Joseph Seminary, Yonkers, NY
Gabriel Scasino, Conventual Franciscans, Forestville, MD
Paul Zalonski, Diocese of Bridgeport, St Joseph Seminary, Yonkers, NY
In the last few years Capuchin Father Charles Sammons and Fathers John Lavorgna and David Manna (priests for the Archdiocese of Hartford) were ordained priests and all from the greater New Haven area.
If there are others let me know.
